Samba 2.0.5a and Suse 6.0/6.1 Browsing problems

I try to set up Samba 2.0.5a on a Linux-Box (Suse 6.1). Samba seems to 
be working fine, that means from a Windows-Machine I can search and 
find this Linux-Box and I can connect to all shares. The browsing list of 
the Linux-Box (/var/lock/browse.dat) contains all Windows-Machines on 
the Network, but I can´t see the Linux-Box from any Windows-Machine.

I have tried a lot of different settings in the smb.conf file, I read the man-pages, 
the documentation and the file "browsing.txt", I tried to find a solution at different 
Web-sites, and now I am without any hope.

I have set up a lot of Linux-Machines with Samba 1.9.17 and they run all very 
well, including the browsing. What is trick for the browsing with the 2.0.5 Version ??
