Sounds like you need to play with Samba command line tools on a second box. Sorry I can't offer direct hints, I've only briefly played with them years ago. But, you make a query of the server, and get the results. You can see what the servers are telling you. That'll point out whether the server is goofing (not showing your share), or the client (not showing what it's being told about). -- (This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's important to the thread.) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I read messages from the public lists.
