unable to find any workgroups when only 2 pc are connected


hope someone can help.

I've set up a home network (workgroup) with 2 PC and a laptop.

1 PC : Windows 2000

2 PC : Suse 9.2 (with Samba installed).

3 PC (laptop) Windows XP home.

When all PC's are on then everything is working OK.

When only the 2 PC are on Windows or Samba are unable to find the workgroup on my local network.

If both of the PC's are running Windows 2000 then everyting works OK as well

Anyone seen this before ?
