      smbclient -U username //LINUX1/username

      Might give you a better idea actually (I cut and pasted the machine name
      from your earlier mail and forgot to edit it).

        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:

        >I can
        >see, in my network neighborhood on the 98 machine, a new directory
        >with the label of the mandrake machines name on it, (linux1). (YAY

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

        >>have you created an seperate user (ie you specifed the user in
        >>/etc/samba/smb.conf valid user=" ")with an passwd and do the same
        >>for smbuseradd with the same user name and passwd.

        >yes I set the valid user as IP addresses and There is a linux user

        you may have set an same username and passwd but you haven't login with it
        in win98.

        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.

        thanking you
