Cant see samba shares

Hi, I am setting up a samba server using mandrake 10.0. I have created usernames and passwords ok and have set up the server. The client machines can see the server name but can not see any of the shares within it. When trying to mount it never asks for username or password. I have attached the smb.conf file and would be thankful for any assistance.

Thank you

I don't know if theres any other things in there you can change, but I noticed you don't have

browseable = yes

Try that under the share that you want to show up.
