i don't think so. It's not a problem of Win 3.x. I've got the same problem
with Win95 and WinNT. I heard, this is a matter of some nic's. I tried a
couple of manufactures but the server isn't shown. I use the wins service on
all systems but it has no effect for the browselist. On my network at home i
can see (my own local) samba server. But at the corporate network i'm not
able to. May be because all servers use two nics. I don't matter above this
behavor. I can see the shares over the search option (Win95) or on WFWG via
entering only the desired server name in the connection box (don't append
any share name, use only \\SERVER. So you will see the shares).

Have a nice weekend

Never trust a operating system you have no sources for
Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
