Good suggestion, I tried it.
The registry change and enabling the browser service produced the same results as before, same error ("The specified network name is no longer available.").
However, it did allow Windows XP to force itself to use the Samba server as the master browser without having to disable the Computer Browser service, which is what I had been doing. So that was nice.
Any other suggestions?

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