I am running samba 2.2.5 win RedHat 8.0 Linux machine

Windows 2000 machine has fixed IP
Windows XP machine  has fixed IP
Linux machine has fixed IP on eth0 (local network NIC) and
dynamic IP on eth1 (NIC connected to ADSL modem).

I can ping ( linux machine) from all machines
I can ping ( windows 2000 machine) from all machines
I can ping ( windows XP machine) from all machines

I can mount windows 2000 shared folders with command bellow
mount -t smbfs -o username=administrador,password=123 //winbox/pub

but what I want to do is to access files that I have in the linux
machine from windows.
I'd do that using "net use K: \\linuxbox\first" but it doesn't work
command nbtstat -A returns host not found but ping winbox
pings ok
the command nbtstat -A returns the shared resources on the
Win XP machine ok and viceversa
bellow it is my smb.conf. I've made it as simple as possible
