One thing we learned in deploying XP workstations was that there is an SMB signing option in the registry - disabling the Security Signing dramatically improved any network browsing from an XP client, whether directory or printer.
Set the "EnableSecuritySignature" to value 0 (zero).
This took care of all of our browsing issues, which were experienced on Win2K Server, Samba 2.8x, 3.0, and NT Server 4.0. Server 2003 did not cause this issue.

Hi, I was reading your article. One question, do you have Norton antivirus
installed in your system? if so, there's a problem with both of them. We are
experiencing the same problem. Just have to wait for the next service pack
from Might Microsoft. Have a nice day.
