Are you using Service Pack #3? If you are you won't be able to see/use
the Samba server because of the encrypted passwords (read the docs.
about WinNT in the docs directory) unless you do something about
(read ENCRYPTION in the docs directory).

To be able to browse and see your Samba server I suggest (again)
you read BROWSING in (again) the docs directory.

Yup: just go to Start menu and choose Run. There type the name of the
share you want to access. Something like this: \\samba_server\share_name.
Or just type "\\samba_server" to see the available shares.

See ya.
