The 192.168.0.3 is the LAN address of the machine on which the smb.conf
resides. I have assigned all my machines addresses in the 192.168.0.xx
Thus, one some other machine, the entry might be:
interfaces = 192.168.0.14 eth0

I guess that line is no longer needed. Must have come from my SuSE distro
when I ran that. There is no such file in the current /etc/samba

Not that I am aware of. I was surprised to make a check just now and see that
even the workgroup name isn't mentioned.
But here's a clue: when I issue the findsmb command, the response is:
root at linux1:/etc/samba# findsmb
IP ADDR NETBIOS NAME WORKGROUP/OS/VERSION
192.168.0.2 SRV1 +[SRV1] [Unix] [Samba 3.0.22-13.18-SUSE-CODE10]
192.168.0.3 LINUX1 [LINUX1] [Unix] [Samba 3.0.24]
192.168.0.15 WINMAIN1 [WINMAIN1] [Windows 5.1] [Windows 2000 LAN
192.168.0.52 KLINUX1 +[KLINUX1] [Unix] [Samba 3.0.24]
So it is using the names of the various machines as the NETBIOS name.
