Hi, I wrapped the lines for you ....

If your clients are exclusively Win98, then you do not need the PDC

Please see the book Special Edition, Using Samba (better than the other
book with a similar name :-) for copious details on both logging onto Samba
from Win9X clients and using Samba as a PDC with WinNT clients ...
