Netbios (cannot ping windows box using machine name)


Hello,

I have 2 boxes on my network

Slackware 9.1
"godzillax"
192.168.0.100

Windows XP
"skywalker"
192.168.0.101


skywalker can ping both 192.168.0.100 and godzillax succesfully. godzillax can ping 192.168.0.101, but cannot ping the machine name, skywalker.

What is needed to get the linux box to ping the machine name?

Thank you very much
