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

Thanks for your advice. I think the problem must be name resolution because users can happily access the shares if they use the ip address. 
The only thing that can do the name resolution is Samba, but I don't know how to get it to do so. And I do find it odd that the netbios name I set for the host doesn't appear in the workgroup, which remains resolutely empty.
