I don't use GNOME so I don't have much direction to give you there but I did find that that KDE has similar issues on first install that updating to current seemed to fix.

In the interim, if you go to 'Internet' and choose 'Konqueror' and type
'smb:///' in the address bar, you should be browsing the Windows
networks...perhaps that works in nautilus (GNOME) too.
