Also, if you can open files on the remote SMB server when you booted your PC from an Ubuntu LiveCD, then I suggest that you look at the file /etc/samba/smb.conf file when you're running Ubuntu, and compare it with the one on your HDD when you're running Sabayon Linux.

a) Compare the version of Samba installed on your HDD under SL with the version on your Ubuntu LiveCD.
b) Check the version of net-fs/samba installed on your HDD and try different versions. I currently have version 3.0.33 installed and can open files on a Windows Vista SMB server (I don't have a Linux Samba server to try it with).

I'm sure others will tell you different, but I had terrible trouble browsing Samba shares in Ubuntu using Nautilus, whereas Smb4K in Ubuntu worked a treat. You could try installing the package net-misc/smb4k to see if you have more luck opening the files. It's a KDE package but works under GNOME too (at least it did the last time I used it). There is a KDE 4.* version (0.10.2) in Entropy, but Entropy does not have the KDE 3.* versions 0.8.7 (stable) and 0.9.7, so you'll have to use Portage if you want to try either of those two versions.
