Issues with Samba and Nautilis

I am running RH WS 3 and my network consists of another Win2k machine and an XP machine. Samba does work, most of the time. I had to enforce a password and encryption in order for RH to see the XP machine.
Anyway, a lot of times when I first boot up and attept to access the Nautilis browser in order to see the network through Samba, Nautilis crashes with an error the first couple of times. Getting on my XP machine and authenticating to access the share on my Linux box does help sometimes. Usually, however, it takes a couple attempts at clicking on the "network servers" icon in GNOME to see the workgroup, and the other machines. Samba seems to work better when attepting to view Win2k machines only. Any help is appreciated.

it has been my experience that using linux file browsers with samba is just crap
best to use command line
i just setup aliases in /root/.bashrc call then whatever you like and make some folders in /mnt
alias mountwinshare='mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //server/share /mnt/share'
alias umountwinshare='umount //server/share'
