Mounting a cdrom using samba problem

(I use SuSE 7.1/Linux 2.4.5/Samba 2.2.0. I'm trying to mount the cdrom
of a win98 machine)

I have a pretty weird problem:
Samba mounts drives on the other computer (win98) very well.
However, when I mount a cdrom on the other machine comes a weird problem.
It mounts well, but then when I try to go into some directory inside the
cd- after several 'ls' commands it tells me either 'Input/output error' or
'Not a directory' error, depends on what I do.

What makes it weird is that in the first 'ls' commands it works, but then
suddenly (usually after one or two working tries) it cannot ls these
directories inside the cd and returns these errors.

Any idea why it happens?

Thanks in advance,
