Is there a way to get Samba to show a list of all the computers on the current workgroup that are currently exporting directories?  I was looking for something kinda like the Win95 Network Neighborhood, except it doesn't have to be graphical.

First you use "nmblookup -M workgroup" to check for the master browser of your workgroup.
Then you use "smbclient -L masterbrowser". The output of smbclient are the shares of the master browser and a browse list.
The browse list contains all computers which are exporting directories.
Then you can use "smbclient -L computer" to find out which directories the computers are exporting.

T did that and go the error below:

[root@gaea dragon]# smbclient -L 18.228.0.45
Added interface ip=18.228.0.155 bcast=18.228.255.255 nmask=255.255.0.0
Session request failed (131,130) with myname=GAEA destname=18.228.0.45
Called name not present
Try to connect to another name (instead of 18.228.0.45)
You may find the -I option useful for this

With my configuration it works fine.

Sorry, that I couldn't help you, but perhaps have a look at the BROWSING.txt that comes with samba.
