acces of computers in lan

I have set samba and lisa and now I have acces in my MS Exchange Lan from my fedora 7. The strange thing is that some colleagues that have win XP or 2000 can be seen by my, others not. Those with w98 are totally "forbidden" for me. Does somebody knowwhy ?
Thank you !

Are You able to ping with WIn98 clients??? DO you and win98 clients have same range of IP????
Check the line "host allow" in samba configuration file.

We have the same range of IP. But I don't know how to ping the w98 users - can you tell me ?
A supplementary question: can anybody sent me a link or explain me how can I share files in fedora 7, in a MS Exchange (windows) LAN ?
Thank you !

To share files, you'll need the Samba tool.
See also LinNeighbourhood I believe.
To ping the other boxes, just open a terminal window and use
ping <their ip address>
They should be able to tell you their IP addr by using the ipconfig (?) tool from the DOS cmd line (aka cmd.exe ?)

I can practically access any computer with the command
smb://ip adress
from the adress line in kde
even I don't see that computer in the lan directory. But I don't know how to make some shotcuts to this issue, because it is not very practically...
