Assuming you mean pinging the PDC. Can you ping any other hosts? Does everyone have this problem. Could be a bad cable, port on switch/hub, etc.

Make sure that you have done a winipcfg on Win95/98 machines or IPconfig on NT machines to verify that they have an IP address and that it's the right network and subnet mask. If these are correct it must be a physical connection issue, ie; cable, card, hub port, etc. Good Luck.
