    can't not see shared samba pc on XP my network places

    Hello,

    I did set samba server up.
    I just modified only one configuration from default /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
    Just workgroup = MSHOME to workgroup = WORKGROUP.
    And browseable = yes.
    Beacuse my xp workgroup is WORKGROUP. So I changed as same workgroup name
    both unbuntu and XP.

    But I couldn't find samba pc on network places at XP.
    What's wrong with me?
    I have started smbd and nmbd already.

    There is a ridiculous something. I can access samba at XP only typing \\samba IP address. But why I can't see at network places.
    I REALLY can't figure it out.

    Does anyone has some idea?
    Thank you!

    p.s) I am using ubuntu 10.04 TL

    You do need to set up some shared folders.
