IMX browseable = No in the share section doesn't hide the 
share from appearing in Net Neighborhood (didn't test to see 
if it hides the *contents* of the share--i.e. if you need to 
know full path into the share to access files in it.) 
browseable=No in the global section works as expected. This 
is with 2.2.7a; YMMV, NRWS, DNEYS, etc.
