Are you expecting it to appear in the "My Network Places" list? Windows
has an eccentric, unpredictable "schedule" for adding items there.

Go to Start, Run, and enter

\\name-of-server\share

then hit OK. Of course, you should substitute the actual name of the
server. If it opens a window (with whatever is in /srv/samba visible in
it), you're good.

If that doesn't work, try

\\name-of-server

and let us know what you see.
