Problems with Samba

I have installed samba on one PC and on another PC I have
Windows 95. I can ping from one PC to the other. When I test
the samba program with "smbclient -L myhost" it works fine.  But when I test it with "nmblookup -d 2 *" I get the error message: Network is unreachable.
So what could be the problem?

Ok - Assuming that the above hasn't been typed in, and
is accurate:

The interfaces line in smb.conf doesn't match your machine Ip address. - You don't actually need the interfaces line in smb.conf - you would be better off without it.
