Oops, Slackware not RedHat (that's what you get for reading three mailing
lists at once...). Peter mentioned several other possibilites (different
workgroup names, etc.) so check those out. Did you do a source install, or
use a Slackware package (does it *have* packages? :o)

Subject: First Time Post: Network Neighborhood NOT displaying Linux server
First timer poster, so flame it all ya want!
My system: Two windows boxes, one 98 SE and one 95, connected to LAN
Linux box running Slackware 7.0 and Samab 2.05(a).
My shares: 1 share on each windows box, DemonX and LogicX; three public
shares on Linux server, All, Ftp, and Http.
Problem: Using a dos prompt, I can map drives to my computer by typing
the IP or Netbios name of the Linux server (192.168.1.1 or \\InsaneX\),
however, \\InsaneX\ does not appear in my Network Neighborhood area on
windows boxes. In addition, when I do map a drive to the Linux server,
"My Computer" it shows up as (H: 'Ftp' on InsaneX) Any clues as to what
may be doing wrong?
