Chris, thanks for the reply and good idea.
The problem that "browstat status" (MS support tools for XP) reveals is that XP does see the Samba server as the master browser but is unable to pull down the browse list from Samba.
Anybody know how to fix the problem of XP not being able to get the browse list from Samba?

I think you need the Browser service enabled. Try some registry tweaks
