wins disappears

Hi all.  I'm trying to set my Linux box, using 1.9.17p1, to be a wins server for
my laptop.  If I understand correctly, this will elleviate the need for a DNS
server for other windows machines on the network.

What I don't understand is that no matter what changes I make to either box, the
WINS support section of the network config in win95 never 'sticks'.  It always
goes back to 'disable WINS support' and I can't figure out why..

Any ideas?
