Check your IP numbers (is it within same range), and Samba network option.
Have you TCP/IP on your Win98?

Yes, it is true. There is so many Linux Samba servers around, works well and
more reliable than MS Windows server itself.

First, I never used CUPS, so I really can't help you.

Second... I've posted few question, too, and get no answer, but still I
don't think that nobody want to help me, but maybe I have so specific
problem that nobody here already have it. So, be patient, wait few days,
maybe somebody will help you. Remember, this is not official support, this
is just free help from other users. If you can't get answer, try somewhere
