[Samba] dhcp router and samba

I am trying to set up a linux/samba server on a win2k workgroup.  I have a di804 router with a pseudo dns and dhcp in the router.  

I can ping all ip addresses from each computer including the router from each.  The ms boxes can ping by name.  When I ping samba by name, I get an error: unknown host samba.

I have configured my ms boxes to see samba as the wins server.  The router is the pseudo dns server.  I think this is my problem.  

Any help would be appreciated.
