I found the way they get the browsing to be truly bizarre.

It seems indeterminate when it would "see" the machine
(I've seen this at home on one cable)

I'd advice:
	1) check the lan with ethereal or tcpdump on port 138 (I think)
	2) go eat or have a cup of coffee

I've also seen the problem at home with a samba machine and an NT machine...
sometimes it takes the NT a long time to see it...

Also you can do a 
	net view \\sambahost
to see if you have connectivity.  But it still may take a while to show
up in the network neightborhood.
