what we may be missing?

The Server is running WINS and DNS.  The linux
server on the remote side is providing DNS for it's location and is
pushing the WINS and DNS settings for the Server.  The linux servers on
each side is running Redhat 7.3 and cipe VPN using IPTables.

Can't remember for sure, but doesn't Win98 broadcast info like that? If so it wouldn't work over that sort of link. We use a linux vpn here also (IPCOP) and there are a few gotcha's involved.
