Are all the machines using TCP/IP? Can you ping the NT machine?
How about FTP? If you want the LINUX machine to access Shares from the NT
machine, there are two ways that can work:
1. Use smbclient, which is (I think) part of the Samba suite of
2. Use the stuff built into the kernel to allow SMB mounts
(on the kernel build, the option is SMB filesystem support, to mount WfW
(windows for workgroups) shares. I have only used this once, but it does
work OK, as far as I remember.
Samba on LINUX can also act as a file server for the NT machine
Hope this helps,
