I haven't experienced this problem myself. You can add the Mac's IP address to your LMHOSTS file. There is an LMHOSTS.SAM (sample) file in %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc that you can rename to LMHOSTS and edit. Here is a sample entry:
ipaddress    hostname            #PRE

After you add an entry for the Mac, you can run the command nbtstat -R to load the entry.But you shouldn't have to do this; I'm not sure why your Mac isn't showing up.
