I also had to modify the firewall settings (tab "Firewall Options" to the left of SELinux tab) to make the local-net internet interface (eth0) "trusted". Otherwise I could get no TCP/IP service at all. A ping from WinXP didn't even work, and no "shares" were visible.. Since I have a firewall in my DSL modem, I don't mind open TCP/IP on the local 192.168.*.* net.
