Easy question

Okay, I just updated our Samba configuration from
1.9.something to 2.2.1a.  THe users in question are 
running Win98.

This is probably a simple question, but I just don't have
the experience to know.

Our problem is that one user used to dial in through
our company's dial-in setup and run PPP, and then they
were assigned an IP address on a different subnet (.68).  In
the past, through Network Neighborhood, she could do 
a "search" for her PC, which is on OUR subnet (.16) and find it
and access the shared C: drive just  fine.  No changes
have been made to her PC, just our Samba server here.

How do I "advertise" or make accessible our .16 subnet PCs to
the .68 subnet?  Under Samba 1.9 obviously I didn't have to worry
about this, but Samba 2 is more secure..

Below is the smb.conf file.  I changed our IP numbers to 999.999
for privacy reasons..
