Thanks for the tip. That's not the cause of the issue then :-/
At this point, I can finally get XP to show shared folders if I first
try to connect to them blindly through Run > "\\srv\share".
There were a few things I noticed along the way:
- "restart smbd" works, but "restart nmbd" doesn't. OTOH,
"/etc/init.d/smbd restart" works... and "/etc/init.d/nmbd restart" as
well. Go figure
- apparently, we must remove package "libpam-smbpass", and install
"smbfs" and "winbind"
- /etc/nsswitch.conf requires adding "wins" to "hosts"
- I added the following to a share, with no idea if they're really
available = yes
public = yes
writable = yes
