Question SAMBA -> Unable to "view" workgroup, but can access Server form XP

Hven I type \\SambaServer into my addressbar the logonwindow appears and I con logon and acces files.

But, when my linuxbox is on, no Windows machine (I have 3 connected to the intranet) can open the Worgroup, (WORKGROUP is not accessible).

For some reason, just now, an "Unknown" workgroup appeared (with the SambaServer). evethough the workgroup in the smb.conf is the same as in Windows...

any ideas whats wrong??

Samba server has the ability to be a domain controller, domain master and master browser.

Make sure only the master browser is enabled..
