I have the following in my smb.conf

# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See speed.txt and the manual pages for details
 socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

Actually it looks as if the problem with the slow browsing may 
not be Samba related since XP Pro and Win2K Pro clients browse 
the network very fast. It is XP Home that is slow. XP Home was 
purposefully "crippled" by MS so it lacks networking features 
in XP Pro and Win2k Pro.
