cant see windows shares in konqueror


hello,
i have windows xp sharing w/mandrake 9.1 ok. the only problem is i cant see windows files in konqueror. i can see them ok when i use the smbclient. i'm a little stumped because i thought the smb ioslave in konqueror was just a frontend for smbclient. any suggestions welcome..
thanx

Type in the adressbar:
smb://user@machine/folder
This is the syntax.

no i tried youre suggestions but still dont see any files. its weird cause i do get a list of shared folders when i issue command smb:/windows_workgroup/computername. but when i click on any directory i get a blank window pane that says 0 files 0 directories in status bar. the setup is i'm using windows xp on desktop, mdk 9.1 w/kde 3.1 on a laptop. smbclient /computer_name/directory @ prompt gets me in no problem and i can list any directory...

You probably omitted the "browseable" option.

This is an option in the shares defined in /etc/samba/smb.conf which make folder browseables, i.e. you can look inside.
