OK. Solution found. For some reason I had to add the linux box name to my
laptop's host file. Now it works. However, I'm sure that's not mentioned in
the sambe connection instructions I've read, so it's probably to do with how
I've configured my Windows network, not with Samba. Should I be using some
kind of Windows LMHOSTS or something to allow it to find the samba server
without editing my hosts file?
