Have you set up the same workgroup? What does the "path column" says
after "find computer" shows the computer?

Does linux masq all packets going outside your "private" net? If so then
look at

Basically you need to be sure the master browser of your net knows where
the wins server is, in order to sync its browse list with the domain
master browser and vice-versa.

If you usa samba on the linux box, and all of the above doesn't work,
then try setting samba as both master browser and domain master browser.
