Talking Problem to setup network between SuSE 8.2 and Win98

I have install SuSE 8.2 a few days ago because i was tired of the instability of win 2000.

i want to connect my other computer running win98 to this computer via a hub running SuSE 8.2. so that i can file transfer from my linux to my win98. otherwise i have to use CD to do the job. "too much time consuming and i am thinking of upgrading my win98 computer to linux but before i do that i want to make sure that i can network between computers for in our office i have 3 computer. One dedicated to Internet and 2 for working.

The Ethernet card in working for i can access the Internet in DSL mode.
I have tried by reading around to install LISA and Samba, but i am not getting very far.

in "Control Center -> Internet & Network -> Local Network Browsing" using the LISa Daemon tab there is a button "Suggest Setting" when i press on it, it gives me "No network interface cards found."

I have seen a lot of tips and suggestion using command configuration. Is there a way to do it using the GUI. If not i need every step to be explain in detail. I usually setup my win98 and win2000 computer with ease but with linux i find that the support is laking.

Is Lisa and Samba the only way to do the job?

Can anyone help me?

Thank you in advance.


Follow up
I install SuSE 9.0 and after i started lisa, all work fine. I can access my Win98 with my linux computer.

To start Lisa Here is what I did:
add the lines below in the file /etc/init.d/boot.local

if [ -x /usr/sbin/lisa ]; then
echo "Starting LISa daemon..."

after this i can use "network" in the "open locaton" in browse mode.
