Should be no problem. Install samba at your Linux PC and the win95 and win 98 PCs are able to mount filesystems.

samba should be distributed with your Linux distribution. If not connact an linux ftp server (e.g. http://www.delix.de/) to get one.

Samba is the implentation of the SMB (over TCP/IP) protocol on any flaviour of UNIX.
It allows to connect for example WinXX to a fileserver via SMB (ports 137, 138, 139). You don't need any additional software on
the clients, just install Samba on the fileserver (you UNIX machine), you then can browse the Network Neighborhood accessing your UNIX fileserver.
