Question Browse Linux Files From Windows

I'm a Linux newbie, trying to learn from the "Sam's Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux 8" book. I cannot find an answer to: how do you browse files on the Linux box from a PC running Windows XP?

I have Samba installed, and far as I know, configured correctly as I can successfully browse shared files on my Windows XP network, from my Red Linux 8 machine as well as moving/copying files between Linux and Windows.

When I go to my Windows XP machine, the Linux box doesn't show up in My Network Places. I would like to be able to browse Linux files from a Windows box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
