> Can this be done?:
> Samba is installed on Linux Slackware.
> Linux box can see Windows 95 clients.
> Windows 95 boxes can see the Linux box via explorer, network neighbor

> What I am trying to do is when an authorized user dials into the Linux

Easiest way is to set up a WINS machine on the net,
and have your dial-in client point to the WINS server.
May want an LMHOSTS file to add information about
the Domain controller if you're using Windows Domain
