Is a windows machine you want to access from your fedora box or is it a machine where you are trying to install a samba server?

If is a Windows machine you want to access from your fedora box, then it is not asking about the root password from the Linux machine, it is asking about the root password on the Windows network - chances are there is no user called root there. You can supply the windows username using the -U flag:

smbclient -L -U Administrator
