I waited 15mn in case it was due to some browsing issue, but the
directory I shared on a Ubuntu server still doesn't show up in the XP
Net'hood, with no error when starting smbd or in

Here's the smb.conf I wrote:

# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
;Checked: Same wg on XP
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server %v
;Checked: nobody.nogroup exists
guest account = nobody

comment = Ubuntu File Server Share
path = /srv/samba
browsable = yes
guest ok = yes ;access will be permitted as the default guest user 
read only = no
create mask = 0755

Any idea what I did wrong?

Thank you for any hint.
