John, thanks for the response.
Yes, machine names are standard text, no special characters with the
exception of the Samba box, which has an underscore in the name.
If the workstation is Win2K, everything works great, including browsing.
XP, however, has the browsing problem ("The specified network is no
longer available"). And this is with a fresh install of XP.

Do you have a valid NETBIOS domain or workstation name? I mean less
than 16 characters and absolutely no . in the name.
