What does your log file on the samba box says, when you try to browse
your network? You maybe have to increase the log level=... first in
What network protocols have you installed? tcp/ip is enough ... you
don´t need any other protocol.

Seems to be a conversion problem between machine name <-> ip adress.
Remember, this is done using the .../hosts file on your LOCAL machine!
Have a look at it. Can you *ping* from your local machine to the samba
box using the machine name or have you to use the ip adress?
hope this helps (for the first)
