[Samba] Samba and Wins (winbind) problem on clients

Hello everyone!

I'm facing some problems here, that maybe someone faced the same and could
help me.

I have a samba server (domain name: SMBDOM) that is working as a wins server
too. This server has 2 interfaces, and

My client's network is 192.168.1.x *BUT* when I put the Windows 98 clients
on the Domain (only 98, in XP is OK), the netbios name/ip of my samba is
SMBDOM ->, when the correct would be SMBDOM .

I'm correcting the problem by editing the c:\windows\lmhosts file, but the
problem is on server, isn't it?

My wins server (nmbd) is sending the wrong ip ( instead of the
right one ( to the clients.

The "interfaces" and "bind interfaces only" directive are setted up to my interface, but it's not working as well.

Well, that's it, thanks in advance for any help.
