[Samba] Can not see Linux samba (server) from WinXP system

I put the following line in my (Suse) Linux smb.conf:

workgroup = MYWORKGROUP

and started Samaba by entering 
smb start

After a while I tried to view this Linux machine from a WinXP machine in 
the same LAN but can not see the Linux Samba server. Why?

I can ping the Linux machine. So a general connection can be established.
The WORKGROUP name is the same.

Do I have to enter the WORKGROUP name somewhere additionally ?
