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:

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.
The real power of teamwork. Experience it in real time.
