My 3.0.32 is from the enterprise samba and coincidentally the
html charset problem (mentioned separately) is from viewing 
the enterprise docs.

Someone mentioned SWAT. I don't use SWAT or system-config-samba 
as I admin the server from the CLI. Also its easy to get up and 
running but the problem is not to get up and running. The 
following problems remain :-

1. The CentOS server with Enterprise Samba 3.0.32 is also the DNS 
server but "View Workgroup Computers" is slow from windows. Even 
after tweaking /etc/nsswitch and specifying the CentOS server as 
the browser master and wins server. I've googled and looked at 
people from other distros with the same problem but no joy here. 
I've turned off the computer browser on XP but no avail.
