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


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


and let us know what you see.
