I'm believe you are going to need NETBUI protocol for that old dog. I'm
not certain that you are going to be able to get everything happening
over TCP/IP

if you followed my earlier...if you added 'wins support = yes', then
within the TCP/IP configuration, you might be able to put the ip address
of the Linux server as a WINS SERVER (and you might want to enter the
DNS server address too for S&G's)

Anyway, failing that or a functional LMHOSTS (which can be tricky at
first), simply use the TCP/IP address...
