Linux and Win98 Network

This question is very similar to one already being asked, with one small diference.
I have a small local network with three Windows 98 boxes and one linux box which I plan on making a server. The Linux box is running Suse 6.0
I have configured all the networking paramters on the Linux box  including Samba.  The Windows boxes can see each other BUT NOT THE SAMBA SERVER on the Linux box. However I CAN ping the Linux box from Windows and CAN ping the Windows boxes from the linux box. All the Windows boxes see and ping each other fine.  My network is set up as follows:

Linux Box
Windows #1
Windows #2
Windows #2

1. Are smbd and nmbd running? Check for possible error messages.

2. If possible, boot Linux on one of the Windows machines and try contacting Samba with the smbclient utility.

smbd and nmbd are running and there are no error messages.

I only have linux on one machine. would I have to do a full install on another to use smbclient utility?.
