Connecting to Win 2K with Samba

I have a small home business network with one Win 2K one Win XP and 
one Red Hat 8.0 machine.  The Linux box can connect and share the 
printer on the XP machine.  However I can not connect to the Linux
box from the Windows boxes.

The error I get is "Path not Found".  The Samba server appears in the
Network Neighbour Hood but does not connect.

There is a Linksys DSL Router acting as DHCP server thing.  The names
of the Windows boxes shows up on the DHCP list but the Linux box does
not have a name.

If this is the problem I have not been able to find the file where the
Linux machine name resides.  I have added it to /etc/hosts on both 
Windows and Linux boxes.

My Global smb.conf file is included.

Any ideas on how to get the two to talk.
