Accesing Fedora9 from windows domain

I recently installed Fedora9 on one of my old PC's

I have configured samba using SWAT and added the PC to the domain.

On windows it list my PC ,but I do not have access to it.
Then from Fedora I also do not see any Pc's under networking.

I tried typing testParm to check if my configuration is working and it looks to be fine.

I am able to ping Pc's on the network from my Fedora Pc and from my windows Pc to Fedora.
I do have a ip address on the network and DNS is working.

Please can someone help. There is something that I am missing.

I need to have access to my Fedora Pc from windows and be able to view all the PC's listed on the network.

This is my smb.conf file:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (/)
