SMB problem with RH9?

A complete stab in the dark here would be to check DNS. It might be that
FC1 (which uses samba 3.0.0) might be doing some dns lookups or something
there as part of the handshake process. I've suffered a similar thing with
SSH, where the server couldn't resolve my hostname/ip, and would sit there
for some time before giving me a passwd prompt.

As I said tho, that's just a guess.
