Things work a little different for browsing in Windows 95 than they do in
NT.  First try removing the nobody from the list of invalid users.  Also
check out the GUEST_SESSETUP defines in 'local.h'.  Also try playing with
'public = yes' in the global section as wellas soem of the shares ( I
already erased the rest of your posting so I don't remember if you had
this set or not ).

Hope this helps,
