I've read a lot on the net about using Samba to browse Linux machines from Win95- but I would like to be able to browse Win95 machines from Linux too. This is probably easy- but I can't figure it out- can somebody help?

Thumbs up

Found this in the BIG book, SAMS RH7 unleashed, well worth buying.
logged in as root
create a new directory in mnt called test
# mount -t smbfs //wincli/share /mnt/test
where wincli is your win95 box netbios name and share is the share you want to access.
Will ask for a password, which needs to be the Win95 share PW (only got this working due to changing all shares due to W32.HLLW.Bymer attacks!).
Then you can read/write to it as per your win sharing setup.
I just need to figure out how to access these other than as root.

You should be able to gain access by changing the permission levels, or creating a group for that type of control. man the chmod command or man group to learn more of your options.
