I have a desktop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS running, with Samba installed. My laptop, which has Windows 7 Home Premium on it, can connect to the linux machine via IP, the Ubuntu machine flawlessly navigates to the Windows machine, and both machines see each other's netbios names when nbtscan is run on each machine. So it seems that it should be working.
Regardless, on the Windows 7 laptop, browsing via the network browser will not show the network name of the linux machine.
I'm thinking it's something on the Windows machine, since the netbios names seem to be propogating. Any ideas?

Or have you tried using terminal services and remote into your windows machine and try taking what you need as for documents that are being shared from the windows machine over to the linux box. I have done that over here with a linux box over to a windows 2003 server.
