Subject:   can't ping windows machine

Hello,

      I'm going a bit nuts. I have a 3 computer intranet in my room. 2 
machines are win95 and 1 is FreeBSD 3.2. They are connected via 10BaseT UTP 
at a Linksys hub. Heres my problem:

I can't ping the windows machines at all, and the windows machines can't ping 
the FreeBSD machine. The windows machines can ping each other. To make things 
more complicated, when I run tcpdump I can see the attempts from the windows 
machines on the BSD box with the proper ips. Heres the output from tcpdump 
when I ping BSD:

12:37:26.618523 200.200.1.2 > 200.200.1.3: icmp: echo request
12:37:28.102603 200.200.1.2 > 200.200.1.3: icmp: echo request
12:37:29.120196 200.200.1.2 > 200.200.1.3: icmp: echo request
12:37:30.135294 200.200.1.2 > 200.200.1.3: icmp: echo request

Why isn't the BSD box responding? The computers are seeing each other, but 
not at the same time. Do I need to do routing even though they are directly 
connected on the same hub?

Thanks in advance!

Someday I'll kick this crappy address and service. Too far from phone company 
for DSL. doh.
