I'm not quite sure what you are asking here. In one part you ask how to access a Windows machine from Linux, then you ask how to access a Linux machine from Windows. Which one do you want, and what do you already have working?

Sorry if my earlier post was ambigous.

I have already configured samba server in my Linux machine and hence able to access it form any Windows machine.

Now I want to see and connect to the list of windows machines in the network from my Linux machine. What should be done for this.

There may be some other way of doing this, but the way i know of is to get Win4Lin. It lets you run windows inside linux. It shows up as just another application. And everything runs faster then it usually does on a windows machine. But like i said, theres probably some way to get it working without buying Win4Lin.

I think you need to check out something called smbfs (it may come included with SAMBA). It lets you mount remote SMB drives using "mount" just like any other fileing system (ext2, nfs, FAT etc.).
