Question XP Add printer doesn't show Samba printers

I have RH9 with Samba. I have two printers shared to XP machines. When I use the Add Printer method to add a printer in XP, when I browse for printers they do not show up. If I View Workgroup Computers, then browse Linux box, I can see the printers. If I then double-click on one I get into the Add Printers dialog. I would like to be able to see the printers using the Add Printer method. Is there something I need to add to smb.conf? Or something else?
