Data point: yes. At least the version included with RedHat 4.0 works on
my UDB to act as a fileserver to my Win95 machine.

Which log file are you talking about and exactly what does it say? In my
(admittedly limited) experience, Samba problems are almost always due to
something wrong in the smb.conf file or something on the client end.

Debugging methods:
smbclient -L localhost
everything in HINTS.txt in the Samba source.

Good luck!
