Both, sort of.  There *is* a binary called `rpcclient', and that's what
I was thinking of, but at least in Samba-TNG there are other client
programs such as `net' and `samedit' which share a lot of code with
`rpcclient' and perform some of the same functions.

Like I said, this may not be applicable to your situation, depending on
whether you can get any version of `rpcclient' to cooperate with
Windows95.  Failing that, you can probably still do what you want with
a client-side logon script as per my last post:

Note that the "import file" can be created by using REGEDIT itself, the 
"export" menu item.
