Make sure that the samba host (irix) is correctly identified in the
lmhosts file. This is usually in C:\windows(or where ever  your windows
directory is located) for win95 and win98.

If it is missing you should find an lmhosts.sam file there. Use this as
a model, edit with your favourite text editor, and save as plain
c:\windows\lmhosts (no extension).

Programmers, with their inbuilt sense of order and discipline, should
really be running the world.
