We have a win2k server that has three shares available.  All three can be seen by OS 9 machines through appletalk.  All three can be seen by OS X machines through appletalk.  I can only see two of the three shares through SAMBA on our OS X machines.  

Unfortunately, I don't have access to the server to play around with it, but would anyone have suggestions as to why I can't see the third share?

The share sizes are: ~40GB, ~100GB, ~5GB.

I can't see the ~100GB (reported as 93.1GB in win2k)

Are you using 10.2.4?

Yes, I'm running 10.2.4.  I figured it out with the help of a team member.  Apparently, SAMBA will not recognize share names larger than 12 characters.  Spaces are okay.  We changed our share name to <= 12 and it worked fine.
