[Samba] Browsing from My network places in XP

Have you enabled the netbios ports in /etc/services?  Same question for 
telnet.  Also for telnet, do you have a telnet daemon running?

If they are configured in /etc/services , make sure you are not running 
ipchains or iptables.  If you are running one of these two, you need to make 
sure that you are allowing inbound netbios traffic (ports 137-139)

Hope that helps.   If not, I have a ton of links and things that I can send
