Question (SuSE 9.1 Pro) - Unable to find any workgroups in your local network


I am a newbie to Linux. Recenlty I installed Suse 9.1, I use the default seetings for instllation. My Linux box is connected to Windows XP Pro through "CrossOver" cable. After the installation is done I clicked on Local Network, correctly displayed my workgroup. Clicking on workgroup correctly
displayed computer(Win XP) and clicking on on the computer correctly displayed the shared drive. I was able to copy some files from Windows XP to Suse. I applied the patch for Nvidia and rebbot the Linux(Suse), logged back in and I can not see the XP Box anymore. It prompts me an alert
"Unable to find any workgroups in your local network". Not sure what went wrong.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
