The first thing that comes to mind is a misconfiguration on the Win98
side. You don't specify if you receive an error on the second box, or if
a script is not running. Check the network properties on the Win98 boxes
including workgroup name and whether "Login to Windows NT Domain" is
checked off on one box and not the other. I'm assuming this is a SMB
issue (not a Samba issue) and not a TCP/IP issue. You can ping the Samba
server from both Win98 boxes, correct?
