Problem with two-way VPN using two linksys VPN-enabled routers

Experts,

I am trying to establish a VPN tunnel between two linksys routers.  I would like this to be a two-way connection (one big happy network with all computers talking together).

I've done what I consider to be the correct setup, but only one set of users can see the other set (not the other way around).  Am I trying something that can't be done, or am I doing something silly?  Both?

Here is the setup:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Network "A"
A linksys BEFSX41UG router behind a cable modem (I don't know the type).  The router's internal address is 192.168.2.1.  All computers in this network have an address of 192.168.2.x (x>1) with a subnet of 255.255.255.0.  

A's VPN setup is as follows:
Local Secure Group: subnet, ip=192.168.2.0, mask=255.255.255.0
Remote Secure Group: subnet, 192.168.1.0, mast=255.255.255.0
Remote Security Gateway: IP Address, <the ip of network B's router>
DES Encryption
MD5 Auth
IKE Enabled with a common shared key (this key is the same on both routers)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Network "B"
A linksys BEFVP41 router behind a dsl modem (COVAD something).  The router's internal address is 192.168.1.1.  All computers in this network have an address of 192.168.1.x (x>1) with a subnet of 255.255.255.0.  Earthlink is the ISP.

B's VPN setup is as follows:
Local Secure Group: subnet, ip=192.168.1.0, mask=255.255.255.0
Remote Secure Group: subnet, 192.168.2.0, mast=255.255.255.0
Remote Security Gateway: IP Address, <the ip of network A's router>
DES Encryption
MD5 Auth
IKE Enabled with a common shared key (this key is the same on both routers)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can successfully establish a connection by connecting from B->A.  After doing this, I can ping a computer on A from B, but not vice versa.

I can NOT establish a connection from A's router to B.  The log states "This tunnel should not be initiator".

Does anyone have any ideas?  

Thanks in advance for your help,

Found the answer...

Setting the NetBIOS broadcast on both routers solved the problem.  I'll as that this question be closed.
