Are you expecting it to appear in the "My Network Places" list? Windows
has an eccentric, unpredictable "schedule" for adding items there.
Go to Start, Run, and enter
then hit OK. Of course, you should substitute the actual name of the
server. If it opens a window (with whatever is in /srv/samba visible in
it), you're good.
If that doesn't work, try
and let us know what you see.
