[Samba] General browseability of samba shares

Hi all,
   I have samba-2.2.7a installed on fresh install of RH9.  I 
have samba running.  From an NT4.0 server I can browse both 
the shares and the printer installed on the samba server 
box.  However I cannot browse from the Win2K box sitting 
next to it.

   I can do a "net use p: //SAMBASERVER/public 
/user:maindesk " and then authenticate from the w2k computer 
with password.    The share then is available to the win2k 
machine (maindesk).  I cannot browse to this share via 
network neighborhood nor can I see the printer by browing 
after starting "add printer"

   I'm sure the solution would be simple but when you can't 
find it, it becomes damn difficult.

TIA for any suggestions.

Bob Hartung
