Yet when I look in Network Neighbourhood I can't see any of the machines, yet when I run a 'Find' it can find the boxes (I assume this it resolving the machine using WINS).  I've read through all the documentation that I can find and have checked that I have a guest account setup, and have looked in the file logs and file used by nmbd to store the WINS/browser info and these seem to show that its getting info about machines.  The only thing I am a little curious about is that it says its becomming the master browser of the subnet, yet this isn't a subnet - its the IP address of the Samba server.  Below are the relevant bits nmbd's log.  Any help would be appreciated as I'm stumped!!!

What's "ifconfig" tell you about the network setup?
