[Samba] Shares not visible from Win2k

Please forgive such a simple question. I have installed Samba using SWAT to
configure it. The shares user are visible on the box hosting the Samba server using
"smbclient -L hostname" and I can connect to the share using "smbclient
//edev/mlong -U sharename"

When browsing network neighborhood on a Win2K machine the Server is visible but the
shares are not available. Attempting to map a drive using "net use f:
\\hostname\sharename" fails.

What have I failed to configure?

  Simple network (no PDC)
  Samba Server 3.0 (SuSE 9.1)
  Windows Client (Windows 2K Server)
