upgrade to natty problems - network down

1. Trying to have a network with a server acting as Primary Domain Controller
(using Linux) that every other computer can save/retrieve/edit Libre Office docs
and pictures to. File sharing. Not peer to peer
2. Also need to be able to access printers/scanners/etc. on any computer from
any other computer on network.
I am trying to use SWAT but not very successfully. This is a very small network
and a lot of advice on the net is for much larger networks. Also, I am leaving
the one Windows machine on the network because it is the only one that can
"see"/access the others.
Don't know if this helps but the host I'm on right now has this
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2011/05/30 16:25:41
workgroup = DOMAIN
realm = JOE.OFFICE.COM
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
security = DOMAIN
map to guest = Bad User
obey pam restrictions = Yes
pam password change = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
unix password sync = Yes
syslog = 0
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
dns proxy = No
usershare allow guests = Yes
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
create mask = 0700
printable = Yes
browseable = No
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/printers
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I get different errors at times but mostly when I click on the
workgroup/domain icon after a longish wait I get a: Unable to mount
location Failed to retrieve share list from server error
message. I feel like I've tried everything.
Firstly, what is it that you're trying to achieve? Can you describe your
I'm getting the idea so far that you're trying to get every machine to see
every other machine, i.e. each machine has files to share.
Can you tell me more?
I'm not sure if I can help with your mount error, but I can tell you I've
done a few networks with shared files and so forth and it seems to work
Look fwd to your reply.
