The users connect dial-up with ppp protocol. They need see other w95 machine connect to server via ethernet. I can see the w95 maachine with ping if I connect as local user or telnet, but not through ppp connection

Do you have a WINS server on the Ethernet network?

If not, add one.

Once you've added a WINS server, recompile the Linux machine's ppp source code (available at ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/Network/serial/ppp, latest version at time of this writing is ppp-2.3.4.tar.gz).  Use the README.linux file included along with the source code to enable you to do this.

You will need to recompile the Linux kernel to make the kernel ppp code match that of pppd.  This is documented in the README.linux file.

When you run the "./configure" autoconf script during the ppp source compilation process on the Linux server, use the option -DUSE_MS_DNS, (e.g. "./configure -DUSE_MS_DNS")

Run the rest of the compile normally.  Install the pppd via the normal methods.  Rebuild your kernel if necessary.

Make sure PPP still works by dialing in.

Add a line to your /etc/ppp/options file:

ms-wins [ip.address.of.wins-server]

That provides the clients the IP address of the WINS server on the Ethernet network.

They should then be able to browse the remote network (assuming you point all the LAN clients to the WINS server as well).
