It's easy to share Win95 folders to other Win95 desktops in
a LAN, simply by using Win Explorer. But how do I do the same with linux?  I want to share some documents in my Linux machine to other win95 terminals in our LAN, but I don't know how to configure Linux to do that.

Enable NFS, in your Linux box. You need to have "nfsd" and "mountd" deamons running.
They are started by the rc.inet2 script.
Another point is to check the export protection in the /etc/exports files.
After you just go to you Win95 Network Neighborhood, include the Linux machine.

Good Luck
