samba from the command line can be tough. I've gotten it to work much like you have it... can see windows from linux but not linux from windows. I'm going to take home linneighborhood tonight and try it out. it might be able to help you too.

start at the beginning - 1.if your using swat reset defaults in smb.conf
2. set workgroup in smb.conf and windos to the same name
3. edit /etc/hosts in linux to show windos computer name and IP
4. share something in windos
5. run command ] smbclient -L (windos name)
6. when prompted for password, press <enter>
7. did you see list of windos shares?
holler back
