If the goal is only to access shaed folders on windows PC's you don't need to set up Samba. All that you need do is to use mount  or smbmount to mount the shared folder on Linux. See 'man mount' and/or 'man smbmount' for details.

You cannot have another domain with the same name running on the same network.  If you are going to create a domain on your college network with your Linux box, you need to make sure you give it a unique domain name, so then you will have to change you current network setup on your Win2k and 98 machines.

Once you have the domain setup, and added the machines to it, you can then create shares or even login scripts to map drives upon logon.  If you want the shares on the Win98 or Win2k machines, then you can give your new domain user accounts access to those shares.

No i want my own domain name. I am student not admin in my college. i want to do that for my easy access purpose. My college has many domain names each for each department so is it not possible to create my own domain name and disconnect those pcs from my college network?
