Here are some useful links I found:
This one has ALL info you need to set it up, also its straight from the developers and written in a very clear way.
This one is for troubleshooting, it has helped me TONS of times to figure out what is happening.
This one is for natty clients, specifies how to connect your clients to a server and provides various ways to do it.
Also I just read you said all on your server was good, if you are sure of that then you know its a client fix and you shouldnt touch the server.
By your smb.conf I see you have a REALM setup as JOE.OFFICE.COM, do you have an Active Directory on this network? If you have then you need to join the AD domain before you do anything and you should have mentioned it when you first wrote email asking for help
cause its an entirely different situation if you are on an AD domain than if you just want samba to handle everything.
If you DONT have active directory, then there is no need for the JOE.OFFICE.COM realm, and you should verify also in your clients.
I would suggest you start with the troubleshooting link (2nd one) and then come back with your results.
Hope it helps!

In my experience.* Swat is good if you have already used samba before and know what all the Options do.* Else you can end up with a setup that's far more configured than you will want to and you can get some weird problems.
Your best bet would be to edit your smb.conf manually and just setup what you need and let samba handle the defaults for everything else.
I will try to find a guide for you so you can follow it and have some documentation handy (i will send it in a separate mail)
I feel your pain btw.* I have been in the exact same situation and all went good cause of forums and persistence!*
So don't give up and know I will help you in everything I can
