If you have followed page 3 of woodel.com, and are still having problems browsing to your samba shares, from Linux clients, this step will probably fix it

If you edit /etc/samba/smb.conf

And find the line that says “name resolve order”

And remove wins from that line, (or just make sure bcast is before wins) you will have a lot better chance browsing for your servers by name. Most Linux boxes get lost in wins due to backwards compatibility, if you do not need wins anymore… delete it or put “bcast” before “wins” on that line.
