Mounting a remote samba server with Windows 98

Hi all,

I have successfully setup Samba as a domain master on my lan.  My Windows
machines can connect and login to it fine.  My question is is it possible
for a remote Windows box to login to a samba server using unicast rather
than broadcast.  The machine I want to authenticate is not on the same
network as the Samba server and therefore cannot reach it's broadcast
address.  If so, how do you tell Windows to login to a specific IP address?

Sorry if this is answered if a FAQ somewhere.

Best regards,
