Odd...Does the WINS server have a static
mapping for any of the old network hosts?
You might try flushing the WINS database
and letting it rebuild.
Does the server have a 15-character name?
There have been some issues discussed
lately re: that...
Try using a different name for the samba
server and see if it becoems browseable...
