Problem with Win95 clients

My systems are:

RH 6.1

NT 4  with SP5 - PDC and WINS

Whenever I try to map the Samba share with \\IP_Address\Sharename the error
is computer or share not found.
If I use \\computer_name_in_WINS\Sharename I get prompted with "The password
is not correct".

I did triple check the passwords on both machines - it is the same.
Is the name for the Samba share case sensitive?
I named it "mdii" but the "map" dialog box reports it as "MDII"

To be honest I'm lost.

Thank you
