Is your husbands Windows ME box able to get to the server and other
machines by \\computername\sharename? If he is, I wouldn't sweat the
Network Neighborhood thing. It is notoriously bad, particular in ME, for
not showing everything on the network. Eventually he will show up, it
make take several days (Also make sure his Workgroup is the same).

I have Samba set up on my Gentoo Linux Box. Our access to the internet
is through a broadband modem/router. Internet access in all instances is
fine. The problem is that one computer is not showing up in even its own
Network Neighborhood. I can access the files on this computer though
from the other computer.
Samba setup is as follows:
The Gentoo Linux box Computer A running samba server:
ip 192.168.0.b broadcast 255.255.255.0
Windows ME setup through Win4Lin on Computer A
ip 192.168.0.d broadcast 255.255.255.0
These both show up in the Network Neighborhood of the Win4Lin desktop.
Can access computer B if do add network \\computername\c
Husband's ME computer computer B:
ip 192.168.0.c broadcast 255.255.255.0. Computer A and the Win4Lin files
are accessible in this network neighborhood. This computer does not
show up in the network neighborhood. He is able to use the printer that
is attached to computer A.
All have the same group name. Computer B has been added as a machine to
What have I got wrong? Attached is a copy of my smb.conf.
