To confirm, You can connect across these subnets with netbios or ip, but
only browsing through "My Network Places" does not work? and the only
shares you are trying to browse for are the samba shares on your linux
box? if not do the windows based shares show?

Have you set the workgroup in the samba config? or are you choosing
'View Entire Network' when browsing through My network places?
