[Samba] Samba - Problem Connecting PCs

I want to setup Samba as a new PDC. I followed the instructions on IBM's
site (http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/esdd/tutorials/samba/index.html)

The problem I currently have is that Windows 9X boxes can't connect to the
Mandrake 9.1 Bamboo box.

However, I can make connections on localhost to localhost using smbclient
//localhost/share -U username

I've tried a couple of different lines in the smb.conf  such as 

hosts allow = 192.168.10.


hosts allow =


hosts allow =  (actual PC)

But nothing seems to work.

Any ideas ?
