[Samba] Samba stuck!

Hi I wonder if you can help me.

I'm currently studying Networking as a college course and one of the challenges we have been set is to research, then put into practice the mapping of a linux server onto a Windows NT server.

I'll be honest with you, I'm very new to all this so I hope I explain this correctly.

I have successfully created my own smb.conf file, usernames, areas and a user group.

These all apear from the Windows NT area when I click 'map a network drive' on 'Network Neighborhood' and type the full address.

The one challenge we have been given which I am having great problems with is if I open up 'Network Neighborhood' I need my linux server to apear on the Network list.

I can access the server if I type the address but I need it to automatically apear on the begining list when 'Network neighborhood'is opened.

Do you have any ideas how I can achieve this? Is there something I need to add to the smb file or do I have to configure it from the Windows end?!

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated !

Thanks again

Matt Perkins
