Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network.

Disable your firewall (service iptables start) and if its works, then add ports 137/tcp and 138/tcp as allowed ports in your firewall configuration.

I just learned you can just mark Samba in the firewall configuration window to enable your box to browsing windows shares.

This sounds like your Samba server is not running!? Try 'service smb start' as root. If this was the problem and you want it started every time you boot up - click the checkbox in front of Samba in teh services configuration panel (System->Administration->Server Settings->Services)...

Hope that helps! ;-)
