Can't Telnet or Access Apache Server

Recently I installed a samba box in my classroom which has 31 Win98 computers.  All computers get their ip address via the school headquarter's dhcp. When I used samba it was fine, telneting was fine, accessing the Apache index.html file was fine.

When this initial phase was successful, I wanted to give my students roaming profiles. So I made the necessary adjustments to smb.conf and windows. I was successful creating roaming profiles, but when I tried to access Apache and telnet from a win98 machine both were unsuccessful.

I feel soooooo stupid!!!! I figured out what was wrong.

The host name of my linux box is server1.  But in smb.conf I set netbois name=work219.

When I did telnet work219, the login and password prompt appeared.  Thanks 4 the help.
