some win machines see samba, some not.

I have this big problem which bothers me for past week(s).
I have setup a simple samba network on win95 only net and
it worked fine.
This time I try to setup a samba on a network having win98
WinNT 4.0 sp4 and WinNT4.0 WS SP 5.
I believe all machines are on the same local net.
I have tried both samba 2.0.5a (RH6.1 default) as well as
I can use 'smbclient' on host itself to list shares as well to
connect to a share.
I CAN also use another Linux box on totally different net to
connect to the SAMBA on the box in the question (using FQHN)
and I can login into share and list the files.
NOW, the problem, none of the machines on the net except WinNT
WS SP5 (one machine) can see the sama server in network neight.
I have tried 'net use g: \\smbsrv\share' but it would not work
for me either :-(
I don't think WINS is used there.
I'm totally out of ideas, and looking over samba archives it seems
that most of the post with word 'see' seems be ignored :-(
