Netbios (cannot ping windows box using machine name)


I have 2 boxes on my network

Slackware 9.1

Windows XP

skywalker can ping both and godzillax succesfully. godzillax can ping, but cannot ping the machine name, skywalker.

What is needed to get the linux box to ping the machine name?

Thank you very much
