Thanks for the reply.  Actually, I just read something about how the
Samba server, browseable or not, will not show up in Network
Neighborhood unless you have a "guest" account in the smbpasswd
database.  So I added one and, sure enough, everything showed up.
Thanks for the help anyway.

Can you please explain a little.
What are you looking for in the network neighborhood? Windows boxes or
samba shares? If you want to see samba shares you need to make them
