What is your SAMBA configuration ? Could you post your smb.conf?
Are every users having a using account ? Samba is mapping UNIX home directory.

Verify in your WINS server if the entry for your SAMBA server is correct. Verify also if you can join without problems your WINS server from your SAMBA server. Do you have this problem for all users or only some ? If they get their network configuration by DHCP, maybe there is a pb on it.
