Can anyone help us...  We're Samba ist Timers...
We're trying out a Linux machine as a feasability study.  We're running
a copy of SuSE 6.1 Linux on a DX4/100 and trying to get Samba up asd
running.  As far as I can tell it's all ok, but I can't ping anything
from the Linux box and Win95 / NT workstation can't see Linux.  The DX4
has a 3Com509B NIC, and as for as I can tell is registering on the hub.
We also run HP-UX systems and Linux can't see them either.  The smb.conf
file is configured in a fairly basic form but I don't understand why I
can't ping anything.
