Greetings to you also from Canada and a happy new year, may the Lord bless you abundantly above all that you can ask and think.
You are right, i did not have time to change my post before you reply, i was going to change it this morning.
there are only 2 changes.
I have tried to get the thing to work for the past few weeks. I notice that the computer need to reboot to get the change do be implemented.
From what i understand from my search is that in order for the workgroup to show up there must be a master supplying the information. Win98 dose that for when i plug a win98 computer, the workgroup show up. but i wanted it to work with only Linux computers. If you want to make all your Linux computer to work for the workgroup when the master is not on line, change those 2 lines and the line "os level = 2" from 2 to 3 an so on. the number determines the boss. so you should put the highest number to the computer you want to be the boss and the other one in between by order you want them. For a Linux computer to be the boss of a win98 you have to specify a number above 32 i think. I remember reading it somewhere but i am fussy about the exact number.
I tried to change only one of those line but it only work with the 2 changed.
I also notice that it take a little time to search the network and all the computer to show up so i put all the IP address of all the connected computer in the file: "etc/hosts".
To see if your configuration work, your computer should see itself and act the same way as if your are trying to log on from an other computer in your network, i suggest to get the computer your are trying to config to work right, before you go on the network and then compare the behavior of each computer as you click on icons when your are browsing to see if all do the same thing and do want your want them to do.
Hope this help
