Thanks for all the help.  I agree that WINS seems to be the issue, or
atleast it is a place that we can start with to help track down the issue.

Currently is the WINS server.  This is necessary because I need
cross subnet brownsing between 192.168.6. and 192.168.5.  According to the
man page for smb.conf only one computer on your network can be a WINS server
and this is the computer that all other computers have access to.

That being said 192.168.6. and 192.168.5. are both PDC's for their subnet.
All I have done is moved the configuration to a new machine.
Replaced that machine.  Removed Samba 3.0 and Installed Samba3x.

How do I make sure that recognizes as the ADMIN PDC
so that WINS traffic is directed correctly?
