need a little help with samba


Hello all.

Have set up my small network, added samba to the server and everything seems
alright at the server (eg typing smb:/192.168.0.5) will bring up my shared
files, but I type that from the client I get a message saying that it can't
display location because no host could be found?

What does this mean?

I can ping, webmin and vnc to the server so basic networking is ok.

Any help gladly accepted.
