I don't know if this is the problem or not - but I've seen Windows
95/98 be flaky (anyone surprised? :-) - sometimes other machines (both
samba and other Windows 95/98 machines) show up and sometimes they
don't, but I've got shortcuts on the desktop to files on the samba
server and double clicking on those works even when the samba server
doesn't show up in Network Neighborhood.
