Samba / NT / Win98 and Browsing

Hey all,

Our scenario is hopefully quite simple.  A client has a MS Small Business 
Server and about 6-8 Win98 clients.  There are also two SCO v5 boxes, which 
are running samba 2.0.3 (the precompiled version).  From the NT box, we can 
see the SCO servers, but from the Win98 boxes, the SCO servers are not 
visible.  Samba is configured to register its name with the NT WINS server, 
and I'd like to keep the NT box providing name services (it also provides 
DNS for the LAN, which looks up client names within the WINS database if 
not found within the local DNS tables).  Samba is configured to simply 
provide share level access to the data (the network is not such that mega 
security is required, hence the shares just have empty passwords to make 
connections easier).

What do I need to do to have the SCO servers show up in network 
neighbourhood on the Win98 clients?
