smbmount returns error0 called name not present


trying to mount a laptop to my linux box
i type in smbmount //192.168.1.x/LAPTOP-JPH-C (sharename of drice c ) /mnt/Laptop but get the error called name not present.

I can ping the address from my linux box the box I'm trying to connect is a win 98 laptop. The laptop does have a bios password When it launches the network comes up asking for username and password which don't exist sdo I just cancel and then the network from 98 to other win machines work does anyone have any ideas?
thanks

ICMP
internet control message protocol

ICMP consists of many packages such as ping etc

if u have ICMP disbaled then any machine pinging u won't get any response
