help with Win2k and Samba

Hello, I´ve been trying to solve a problem which i´m pretty sure it´s a "newbie problem"...  I´ve installed Samba 2.0.7 on a Red Hat 7.1 machine, configured a small smb.conf file, updated the Windows registry with the "plain text passwords", and reviewed the DIAGNOSTICS.TXT about 10 times, every time, steps 1 - 7 work fine but step 8 (net view \\SambaServerName) fail.

Also, I´ve downloaded WebMin to try to fix the problem with the configurations with no change in the problem.

I´ve already tried to Enable Password Encryption, Disable it, and still i cannot view the shares in my Win 2k Box.

Here´s the smb.conf file i´m using:

 printing = lprng
 dns proxy = no 
 security = user
 encrypt passwords = yes
 ssl ca certfile = /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
 workgroup = GRUPO_TRABAJO
 server string = Samba Server (Viper)
 socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
 log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
 load printers = yes
 printcap name = /etc/printcap
 wins support = true
 max log size = 0

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = no
   printable = yes

 path = /home/Administrador
 valid users = Administrador
 comment = Win2k
 public = yes

 path = /home/Marco/
 writable = yes
 valid users = Marco
 comment = Millenium
 public = yes

Every time I try to view the network neighborhood in W2K i can actually see the Server, with the comment, but when I try to open it, an error pops up after quite some time.  "Network path not found" or something like that.

Please, I would really appreciate if someone has a solution to this problem, i´m sure i´ve overlooked something very easy.  Thanx in advance.
