Do something for me. When the win95 box gets connected, go to "Run..."
in the Start menu and run 'winipcfg'. You'll get a window which will
show you all the current IP settings, including DNS and WINS. Verify
that all these numbers are correct. (I suspect they will be, but this
way we'll know for sure.)

Then (assuming success with winipcfg) make sure that you have 'proxyarp'
as an option on the linux box in /etc/ppp/options. Also, are you sure
you're running samba? Type 'dpkg --list samba' to see if you've got
it properly installed. (If you have, there should see a 'samba' line
with 'ii' at the front of it.)

Do this stuff and get back to us.
