i'm running samba Version 3.0.22 on solaris 8.
In my previous version of samba, windows  users  could browse to their 
shares through network neighbourhood.
They can no longer do this and have to manually map each drive. Any 
ideas why this might be? My smb.conf is below.

The error says the network name cannot be found
