Last week I build a minimum net work. On a swich there is a firewall, a 
win98SE-box and a linux box as samba-server.
Ping to each o these machines are going well. The Win-box 'sees' the

neither localhost, the linuxbox or the win-box.

I didn't configure winbind and LDAP. On all machines hosts and lmhosts are 

What could be wrong?
