from my experiance the only change to smb.conf file that affected if the box
showed in the network neighbor hood or just in 'entire network' is the line
that reads workgroup=<insert yours here>  or something like that.  can't get
to my smb files now 'cuase that hdd isn't in a system.  if that line doesn't
match the win9x box's workgroup setting, then the box will only show in
'entire network' but will still be accessable.  this holds true for windows
boxs too.  

please correct me if i'm wrong
