OK, it seems like you have done the right things, and WINS is defined ...
Just to be sure, run up winipcfg/all and check that the WINS server is
defined, but if you have authenticated, the WINS is probably defined.
To sort this out now, we may need a packet trace ... grab one on the Linux
box from ppp0 or wherever ... with
tcpdump -i ppp0 -s 1500 -w ppp.cap
Then uuencode it and send it to me. BTW, grab the trace when you are trying
to browse a server from the Win98 box or access a server, etc.
