Win95 machines DO NOT participate on a domain therfeore the machine itself does
not need to be independantly authenticated. Win9x machines only authenticate
valid users against a domain. This is the big difference between domains and
workgroups. Win95 essentially treats the domain as a workgroup in most
respects, in NT it is completely different.
