Question still cant get nmb daemon starting

still trying to get my samba up on ppp connection. when i goto start smb the nmb does not start. the log file for the nmb daemon looks like:

[2004/12/02 11:23:53, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(794)
Netbios nameserver version 2.2.7a started.

my ifconfig is:
ifconfig -a
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:

TX packets:444 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
RX bytes:3609524 (3.4 Mb) TX bytes:906512 (885.2 Kb)

and my smb.conf is:

workgroup = carrier
netbios name = samba
encrypt passwords = yes
interfaces = ppp0
log level = 3

guest ok = yes
read only = no

path = /home/tratman/Downloads
guest ok = yes
read only = no

when i change the subnet mask on the ppp0 interface to the nmb daemon starts but then my dial-up no longer works. i would like to get my linux machine talking to a win 98 machine for the printer share. also i can see my shares locally w/smbclient -L server command. any comments most appreciated...
