[Gllug] Still not very good at Samba - setting the hostname

Dear GLLusers

People like the system I set up with Samba but they don't like having to remember the IP address of the host, and I can't seem to name the host.
If users go to the share using the ip address, they can go up a level to the workgroup, with the name set in smb.conf, but it will be empty, so they won't be able to go back down to the share.
What have I done wrong?
many thanks,
Tom SW
