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
boxes.

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?

files?
