I recently had this battle too.  Things I've heard of that can cause
1. "Interfaces =" setting in smb.conf is wrong, or has the wrong
   subnet mask.
2. "workgroup = xxx " in smb.conf but on the Win95 machine workgroup is
   set = yyy.  Change Win95 to xxx and Samba shows up.
3. nmbd deamon isn't running... you should see 2 nmbd's running, if you
   only see one, restart nmbd.  

Umm. That's all I can think of off the top of my head.
