I can't get SAMBA to appear in the browse lists for any of the W95 machines
although dialin can see it, but it can't see W95  samba can connect to the W95 machines though.

Here's a topology.

                             NOVELL    NOVELL |    LINUX        LINUX
                              W95A    W95A           W95B   W95B

Class C private network subnetted into 256 subnets  (only 4 used)

Novell does all the IP routing and IPX routing

Servers (other than main) share the same subnet on 1 segment

There are two W95 subnets each on their own segment (ethernet)

W95A can browse W95B, so broadcasts are getting through novell routing.

What am i doing wrong?

here's my config file.....

   workgroup = ULTRA
   server string = Dogger Samber Server
   hosts allow = 172.16. 127.
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   guest account = pcguest
  username = pcguest
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   debug level = 3
   max log size = 50
   security = share
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY 
   remote browse sync =
   remote announce =
   local master = yes
   os level = 35
   domain master = yes 
   preferred master = yes
  name resolve order = wins bcast dns
   wins support = yes
   wins proxy = no
   dns proxy = yes
