Or grab poledit from any NT 4.0 system - works under win 95/98.

Run poledit:

Click on File > Open registry > Local Computer > Windows 95 Network >
Logon > check the "Requires validation by network for Windows access"

I think you can also enable the Remote registry service and do it remotely
on all the user machines...
