[Samba] Maybe not related to Samba - Shares don't show up on desktop

Now that most things seem to be functioning, I'm wondering about 
something else.

On a Netware system, when I view the Microsoft  Network, I see the 
machines that are active on the network. I can open the servers and see 
any shares on that server. I can then right-click on the share and map 
to a network drive

Currently on our pretend server, I can see the server but cannot open it 
to see shares on that server. I therefore must know what I want to map a 
drive to before I map it.

Is there any setting that makes the shares show up under the server 
similar to the way it does on Netware?

I think I have all of the permissions set properly for the user on the 
Windows machine to see the shares. I can map them without any problems. 
I just can't see them to select them.

I have to thank all of you for making this task of Samba AD so clear. 
It's amazing how the light turns on after a few nudges from informed folk.
