Win95 & samba-1.9.17p5

Sat Mar 7 00:25:57 GMT 1998

I am having a strange problem, and have been reading through the samba
that i normally get and have yet to find a solution to a problem that i
am having.
Here is the current network configuration.

two pc's running windows 95
one pc running slackware linux 2.0.33
ethernet connections
\\archive_1\	-- Pentium 166	WIN95
\\info_attic\	-- 486DX/66	WIN95
\\arch\		-- 486SX/25	LINUX
samba 1.8.17p5 running
tcp/ip connection's across the network

I can access the win95 boxes using smbclient, i can see the linux box
under network
neighborhood.  However, I can not access the linux box.  I keep getting a
message that says:

\\Arch is not accessible.

The computer or sharename could not be found. Make sure you typed it
correctly, and  try again.

I have tried everything that I could think of short of paying for tech
support :)  I am just 
at a stand still in trying to get the win95 boxes to recognize the linux
box over the network.  It just seems strange to me that I can use
smbclient out the win95 boxes, can see the linux box on the network
neighborhood but yet can not access.  

Following is a copy of my smb.conf file, if anyone can give me a hand, I
followed the examples and tried my best to tailor it to my networking
needs, was certain that i had it right but alas, to no avail.  Any one
who can lend a hand would be greatly appreciated.
