Does the following look familiar/similar to your problem?
i.e. Microsoft changed something to fix a known bug(MS08-068), and it
messed up the way SMB authentication is done from a windows machine to a
samba server machine. perhaps it messed it up the other way around too.
Fully updated rawhide.
I can see the linux shares from vista, not the other way. I don't know
about the patch--I uninstalled it and no change in behavior on linux
machine. Any idea how smb.conf should look? I used to be able to see
windows shares from all the previous flavors of Fedora as back as (I
think) FC 2.
