What happens then if you try to use the ip instead of the name in the
net use command on the dos box?

You can use the hosts file (similar to the lmhosts file) on the dos
box to associate the name of the linux box with its ip.  Then you
ought to be be to ping by name.

Are there any other boxes on the network that you could test against
the linux box?  That would help you determine if samba isn't
functioning or configured properly, or if it's the dos box that is in
need of the fixing.
