Unhappy Samba.


I have four pcs in my house, one win98se, two win xp pro, and one RH 9.0. Have a lan set up , i can access all my other pcs from my linux box. But cant access my linux box through my other pcs.
Plus, when I access all of my other pcs, from my linux box.....I can see shared resources, and access them.... but when i go about doing other things and go to network servers, I get this error......Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network.

I can then access, but I have to restart my linux box....... Still new to linux.. Could there be something I'm missing , or not doing? Any help would be appreciated.....And thank you in advance......

seems like your firewalling software inside RH9 is blocking the traffic coming from the pc's-
try to disable the firewalling and check out
(' /etc/init.d/rc.firewall stop ', maybe ?)

You can also disable the firewall thru linuxconf

Download it here if you don't have it:
