I have installed samba in a 
Linux RedHat 8.0 PC in my lab
as a file server. The clients
of samba are PCs with MS Windows98.
Now I meet some problems, I can see
samba server name in Network Neighborhood,
but when I click the icon, I get this
error message after a long delay:
Cannot link to Linuxserver(server name).
And I used Ethereal to track the packets
to find the problem, I found that there
were errors like "ICMP: Destination Unreachable"
when packets came from server to client.
The same problem  occured when I used 
FTP from client to check the TCP. 
Ping is ok(I can ping form server to client and
client to server), so I don't understand this problem,
thank you for your helps and advices.
