Linux Client to Windows Web Server Problems

Hello everyone. Wondering if someone can help me sort this problem out.

I have a windows web server with a network card in it which is setup as the IP (obviously for FS purposes) and have my modem connection sharded (which works).

Now this is where the problem is.

I have another PC which I use for testing (well I would if I could get on the internet) which is running Mandrake 9.1. I have a network card in the machine which is working correctly and currently is residing in eth0. The 2 machines however are not talking to each other. The windows machine can neither see, ping or access the linux machine and I think there is a problem therefore with the linux machine.

It all seems to be setup correctly to me and I dont know if I am missing anything. Here is a brief run through.

Windows Machine


Linux Machine


All looks right to me but when I type in on the linux machine I would expect to see the Windows machine but instead I get a window saying that apache is installed...!

Can anyone see where I am going wrong and kick me in the correct direction. By the way both network cards work correctly because I tested them.

Any help is appreciated before both machines go out the window. Oh the windows machine is Win XP btw. (I know, Iknow..!)

Thx G
