[Samba] Server String - getting, viewing with Linux

When viewing a list of network computers with Windows Explorer, it shows 
the server names and the server strings, i.e.;  Bobs computer in 
accounting (WS1), where (WS1) is the netbios name.
Is there any way to get the server string to show on Linux?  It'd be 
nice to see it in Nautilus, but I know I'll have to ask them.  If there 
were a Samba utility that would retrieve it, that would do for now.


Ubuntu 11.04
