Samba Konifguration?

I'm trying to configure Samba under SuSE 8.1.
My smb.conf looks like:

workgroup = web
security = share
path = /web
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes

Have I to configure anything else?
If I type smbclient -L localhost:

Sharename Type Comment
--------------- --------- ---------------
web Disk
IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 2.2.8a-SuSE)
ADMIN$ Disk IPC Service (Samba 2.2.8a-SuSE)

Server Comment
--------- -------------

Workgroup Master
--------------- ----------

Is it ok?
If I'm looking for the workgroup "web" under a WindowsNT Client I cannot see one. But I can ping the Linux-Pc.

Does someone know, what I did wrong.
Is there an online Samba Tutorial (maybe in german?)

Thanx in Advance

It seems there is missing "netbios name = something" in your configuration file (global section).
