When i have the shares/ drive letters mapped, whatever, Ill goto access them and that computer will just lockup or timeout for about 1 minute, then it will resume operation normally. I have approx. 5 comptuers on the suse server, and they all do this from windows xp to windows 98se. I am using set up addresses of 192.168.0.x Your problem are DNS lookups. You don't have a DNS server for your internal addresses, but someone tries to resolve them. Easy way: Edit your /etc/hosts and put all machines in it, enable WINS Server for samba and configure all machines to use the WINS server. I think, that you have to tell samba, that it should use dns/hosts lookup for wins queries, but you'll find out I guess ... More approriate way: Install bind9 and put up a zone file with an internal domain (e.g. yourcompany.net). Enter all machines there and use the samba server as DNS server for all clients.
