Unhappy sharing resources on a LAN w/MS-Win98 & Linux (Peer-to-Peer)

I am trying to expand my LAN with a couple of Win98 systems on it to include a Linux system. I have been trying to get Linux/Samba to do this, but all I find in the docs is server/workstation related and my my Win98 LAN is running Peer-To-Peer without login required. Anyone done this before? Surely there must be many Win98 sytem LANs that don't need the security of login & password protection out there. I asked his in a different fashion about 2 weeks ago and everything got me started looking at Samba, but everywhere I turn it relates to Server/Workstation relationships. HELP!

well, what kind of things are you after? you can peer to peer files over a certain protocol, but if you have a linux box with a printer attached to it, that machine has to be a server in order to be able to serve it's services... you can easily remove the security from samba, but i geuss that's not what you're after
