I'm having partial success at login my Win95 machine into the network 
through my Linux box.
Basically, it does not login - can't find a domain server to authenticate - 
but my mapped drives show up.
I can see everyone on the network, can browse them through Network 
Neighborhood, but no one can see me.
Until the authentication happens, there's bits and pieces missing to the 
whole system capabilities.

This is ENTIRE my SAMBA configuration file - what did I miss / do wrong ?

	workgroup = RIDEAU
	password server = RIDEAU-1
	server string = RB206b-Linux Proxy/Router
	interfaces =
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	password level = 1
	security = server
	log level = 3
	name resolve order = lmhosts wins hosts bcas
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=32768 SO_RCVBUF=32768
	load printers = No
	os level = 32
	invalid users = root admin @wheel
	hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
	preferred master = Yes
	local master = Yes
	wins server =
	wins proxy = yes
	dns proxy = yes
	wins support = no
