    samba and win98 networking

    Hey for the past 2hr I have been trying to network my linux box with my win98 one, but I cannot seem to mount them I keep getting a error in LinNeighbourhood.

    I have looked through the docs on google justlinux and samba but I couldnt find anything useful unless I missed what I was looking for...again :-[. I also try what it said in the doc but it didnt work.

    I can't even connect to SWAT I keep getting connection refused to connect to localhost:901 but webmin connects just fine :-\. The win98 box has file and print sharing on. Also the win98 box has no firewall (I know I need one but not going to :P)

    Start by checking this link

    That error message is a bit ambiguous...
