[Samba] No longer able to browse windows share via Nautilus

I used to be able to browse the windows shares on the network through 
Nautilus. I can see them as computers, but when I click on them, it 
fails. (I'm on Ubuntu 6 LTS, AMD64)

About 3 months ago, this failed. But, the windows boxes can all still 
access my shares on my Linux box.

I was going through the trouble shooting, and found this out, but I'm 
not sure what to do next.

I am ADMIN_SEC and I'm trying to connect to W98 PASTOR
$ nmblookup -B ADMIN_SEC __SAMBA__
querying __SAMBA__ on __SAMBA__<00>

$ nmblookup -B PASTOR '*'.
querying *. on
name_query failed to find name *.

Then I tried:
$ nmblookup -d 2 '*'.
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
querying *. on
name_query failed to find name *.

This was supposed to return "got a positive name query response" but 
didn't. The documents spoke of trying different interfaces in smb.conf, 
but I can't figure out what that means.

Is that my next step? If so, how do I do it? If it is not, does anyone 
have anything else to try?
