Can someone please help with my little problem?  I am new to samba and have 
just set it up on my Linux server. The problem is that I can see my server 
name david on my windows 98 network neighbourhood but I cannot asses it. I 
have already created some shares but still cannot asses my server

I can ping the server IP address and get a positive response, but when I ping 
the server name I get unknown host response (david.greek.net) and when I do a 
net view  \\david on my dos computer I get  Error 53: The computer name 
specified in the network path cannot be located……

I think this is a NetBIOS problem, but do not know how to solve it.

Please help
