Fedora-Win95 Networking

I am in a bit of a unknown situation. I have sucessfully set up Fedora Core 1 and Windows 95 for Internet Connection Sharing.

When Windows 95 or Fedora wants internet, Fedora dials out on the serial modem connected to the Fedora computer.

The problem is, since I have been messing with Samba... the Windows 95 machine causes Fedora to intermittently connect to the internet.

Here's my setup:

Windows 95:

Here's Windows 95 network config for TCP/IP on the 10/100 nic:
Specify an IP address is checked:
IP address:
Subnet Mask:

and the Enable DNS is checked...
Host: Windows


These are the DNS settings for my ISP.

As I said... Windows did not do this until I started to setup Samba. I haven't gotten Samba completely working yet, but I am just wondering why Windows would request Internet access just because I setup some SMB shares...

Does anyone have a clue?
