How to browse the samba server from different group?

Here's how I do it:
First, make sure it's not a Windows Explorer problem. Do the following:
net view \\myserver
If you see the shares there, it's win9x's quirky explorer. More on that
later. If you don't see the shares there, on the Linux box do
smbclient -NL myserver
If you don't see the shares there, something's wrong with your smb.conf
browseability. Make sure your global section does not have browse list=no,
and make sure your shares have browseable=yes.
If you can browse with net view but not with explorer, it's likely the
result of no browser election thus no winner. Here's what I do to fix that:
netbios name=myserver #make it findable
preferred master=yes #force browser election on startup
local master=yes #throw your hat in the ring
os level=65 #outspend your NT opponents
domain master=yes #completely rig the election
NOTE: Do not put in the comments! -- they only work at the start of the
line. I've included them at the end of the line for easy illustration only.
