I guess not, but I'm not sure.  I'm now printing with Samba to a Windows
NT server which, in fact, does have an IP address.  That works really
fine.  However, I made some experiments this days with a little local
network of PCs, and only those Windows machines with TCP/IP running and
with a DNS (or /etc/hosts) entry, were reachable from Linux.  By the way,
Win95 includes TCP/IP, so it may be just a matter of configuring it,
provided of course that you are authorized to do so...
