I didn't respond because I have no clue what your problem might be
(I'm a self-taught seat-of-the-pants kinda guy with a geophysics
background, not networking or anything close).

What system updates have been applied to the win95 clients (I
assume they're OSR2?)? Many of them address broken network
The OSR2 FAQ also has some good info:

If 2.x and win95 were that much of a problem, then many other
people on this list would be screaming. The different behavior
you're seeing with win95 and NT is an M$ problem. It's just the
opposite with me: my OSR2 clients work just fine with samba, but
our lone NT4 machine doesn't work quite right. I can browse the
samba server from NT, but I can't list the NT shares from
smbclient. But then, I also can't see the NT shares from a win95
DOS prompt using Net View either. Go figure...
