I think the only way to have linux filesystems show up in network neighborhood is to install Samba on the linux box. Network neighborhood and windows workgroups areshared through the netbeui protocol, and Samba is the only app I know that can map these drives. I've never set it up, so I cant help you there, but there are lots of docs available on the net. Check out comp.os.linux.networking for lots of discussion on Samba.

Hi,

            then use 'smbmount //server/service mount-point'.

for more details see 'man 8 smbmount'.

Sorry, don't think it can be done. So far as I know Linux supports SMB onlt via TCP/IP not native NetBIOS. Any reason why you don't want to turn on IP on the 95 machines? It's easy and if you use private class c numbers (192.168.x.x) then you shouldn't have routing problems.

And you can use DHCP from linux and don't bother about assigning IP for each win* machine...
