Default Mount samba share - but cannot use DNS

Hi,

we have still some windows 98 clients. We mount some samba shares
(from linux server) on them. The problem is that we cannot mount the
share using its DNS name but have to use IP address. It doesn't work
if we use DNS name. Does anybody know why ?

I'm reposting your question to the most-widely-used windows-98 newsgroup
(gen_discussion).

I also advise you to ask your question in the win-9x forum on msfn.org.

Try editing the hosts file on the win-98 machines so that they know how
to map a host-name to an IP address without querying a DNS server.

Your win-98 machines are probably not using a DNS server that is aware
of your linux machines.
