Exclamation samba network problem

i have a samba installed on my suse9pro. but it can't detect my network which the message said:
sorry, couldn't display all the contents of "smb:///". when i clicked the "network neighborhood" icon.

and my samba config (smb.conf) is as below:

workgroup = TUX-NET
os level = 2
time server = Yes
unix extensions = Yes
encrypt passwords = Yes
map to guest = Bad User
printing = CUPS
printcap name = CUPS
wins support = No
veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
browseable = No
read only = No
create mask = 0640
directory mask = 0750
comment = All Printers
path = /var/tmp
printable = Yes
create mask = 0600
browseable = No
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
write list = @ntadmin root
force group = ntadmin
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775

is there any problem? thanks a lot.

Are you trying to access the Samba server throught ur Net Neigh. on ur Winbloze machine?

If this is the case, then you need to enable Wins Support = Yes, Give yourself a NetBIOS name = Samba Server.
You can also make [global] browseable= yes.

Created a separate [share] with a path and make it browseable, readable.

Finally, if you cannot access the Contents of Samba server from your NEtworkNeighbourhood - then you need to add some entries in you ipchains in order to listen and accept request on ports 137,139...
