[Samba] Browsing works, only Samba servers show up

I have seen win9x and win2k boxes not show up in network neighborhood if 
they had no open shares. I believe the rationale is... if they aren't 
offering anything to the network, then why list them?

Also, make sure the wins servers are listed in the ipconfig (or winipcfg 
under 9x). You may need to reboot for them to register themselves with 
the wins service.

Hope this helps.
