Recognizing network names


How does Windows recognizes the network names of the other machines? When you enter in the Network Neighboorhood in win98 you see the other computers presented by their names. Can something similar be done in Linux? I don't mean binding the IPs to names via /etc/hosts, but a protocol or something else that recognize the computer's name. Can it be done via samba?
