Rsync from windows 98 with a password file

When I use this command from a Windows XP system everything works fine:

C:\cwrsync\cwrsync>rsync.exe -avzr --stats --password
file=c:\cwrsync\pete.secret --files-from=filesfrom.dat /

But when I try if from a Windows 98 system I get this error message:

"password file must not be other-accessible continuing without password

Can rsync run from Windows 98 using a password file? If someone has this
working then can you sent me a URL to version of rsync that used to get
it working.

Thanks for your help,
