This occured to me as well. Problem is, how do I do it without using up 
another IP on the network ?
Even if I did use a real IP on the network, how in heck would the SAMBA box 
be able act as the communication medium between the Win98se box and the 
rest of the network if they're both real IP's on the net ?

>(i know, somehow samba should overcome this perhaps ?!?)

I assumed this is what WINS would solve ...
