Did you restart samba after making the change?
Not sure I have seen the problem you describe. I have been able to
access samba shares from windows boxes and windows shares from FC2
The problem I have observed and filed a bug report on is that nautilus
appears to have a problem showing the windows network devices via the
Network Servers menu item or in a plain nautilus window.
I have also found that it is necessary to manually add samba users to
the system using the smbpasswd -a command. Doing this via swat does not
seem to work as expected.
What kind of entries are you getting in your log files?
