There is only one workgroup (harlem) on this subnet. The
`smbclient` output, unfortunately, is similar for the three
computers current in this workgroup:

[root at hurston root]# smbclient -L dubois
INFO: Debug class all level = 2 (pid 26649 from pid 26649)
added interface ip=192.168.0.1 bcast=192.168.0.255

What kind of logon validation does the network use?

Yes, they can. File sharing between the windows boxen is no
problem.

The router blocks ports 137-139 to the WAN in addition (I assume) to
the subnet broadcast address, but all the computers are on the LAN,
which simply uses a hub. I assume that broadcasts are working
because the Win98 comp's can share files.
