I'm having probles when using nautilus to browse smb-shares,

I'm asked for a password and then it takes ages again.
Finally I get a list of the shares on the box, when double-clicking one
of them it takes ages AGAIN, but when I'm finally inside a share things
seem to be working fine....
are you talking about typing "smb://" in the nautilus location bar? and
then expecting that it will show workgroups available, and just click on
those and show machines with shares? first of all, i believe you need
one of the machines to become the master for netbios/wins in your lan.
second, you need to make sure you have the rule:
iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m state --state NEW -m udp --sport 137 -j
nautilus will try to connect to port 137/udp, and also receives
responses from port 137/udp, so you basically have to open up 137 on
your machine. i hope this helps somehow.
