win98 access samba via linux ppp server problem
 
I setup a linux ppp server running redhat 7.1
I got a samba server running redhat 6.2
I have a win98 note book.

From my win98 pc, I can dial in the ppp server. I can ssh into the redhat server.
gurus,

My goal is to be able to use network neighbour from my win98 ppp client to access files in the samba server.


ppp ip ppp ip
192.168.100.1 192.168.100.100

samba ppp ppp
server------LAN--------linux server-------------dialup------win98
client
lan ip lan ip
138.242.147.1 138.242.147.2


1/ my linux server has ipforwarding enabled.
/etc/sysconfig/networks
forward_ipv4=yes

2/ from my win98 pc, it can ping 138.242.147.2 but not 138.242.147.1.


3/ in my linux ppp server, my netstat -rn shows as follows

138.242.147.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0

question:
is it something wrong with my linux ppp server routing table setup?

any reference info , idea , tips to make it work is highly appreciated.
