Question Samba question

Excuse me, this my very first questions in this forums.I have two PCs one run in 98 other run linux, I setup the samba in linux and it seems run well. I can use smbmount to browse the 98's share file I also can see the machine name of linux in 98's Network Neighborhood but I can't browse them after I double click the icon the prompt said "the machine can't be found"(Maybe I use chinese version of 98)! Could you give me some advice to help me! Thank you very much!
