It sounds like a browsing problem. If you can mapa drive to the samba
box without using network neighbourhood (right-click My Computer -> Map
Network Drive), It is definitely a browser problem. In which case, make
sure you have a machine that contains a browse list (NT Server will by
default, or say yes to the browsing options in smb.conf). If you are
getting a message saying you can't browse the network, or you only have
the Windows machine(s) in N.N., then Windows is acting as a master
browser (and should be stopped). Go to the network control panel and the
properties of file and print services and switch the Browse List option
(i think) to disabled. Reboot Windows and start Samba before it boots

Hope this helps.


P.S. I didn't get the attachment.
