I have this problem. Window Xp machines show up in Network neighborhood 
when they are started but after some time (20 minutes or more) they 
I can find them with search computer.
Mapped network drives still work.
They reappear if I restart the pc
They reappear if I restart Samba

Its only a small home network so I do not log in to a domain.

Whats going on?????

My samba.conf
