Samba question

I am exporting a directory from a Samba server in my office. We can easily 
mount the directory on Windows XP if we either explicityly specify the ip 
address or if we include the hostname in the Windows hosts file. However, 
I would like this to show up in "my network places".
My smb.conf looks like this:
        comment = Boston Team Share
        path = /Sambas/TheDirectoryInQuestion
        public = yes
        writeable = yes
        browseable = yes
        only guest = yes
        guest ok = yes

In the [global] section I have the workgroup set up the same as the 
workstations. Both the Windows boxes and the Linux systems are on the same 
hosts allow = 10.xx.

Note that I can see the share from another Linux system on the subnet, but 
not from the Windows XP workstations.
