i think that guy dosen't go in win98 by the username and the log in i have
that same experence. i got that error before ipc$ it due to the worng
username and passwd.
by the way error will not say "iam an error" we have to identify it as a
error and rectify it.
in your previous mail you said that your win98 network showed you:

this is your workgroup name linux1 now you are saying your workgroup name is

you may have set an same username and passwd but you haven't login with it
if you have done it you can able to see you share. see an other way is there
is by go to run //<hostname>/<smb share name> or //<ipaddress> give it after
logging with the linux username and passwd.
