am I missing something.

Hi everyone,

I'm using a CVS download from about a week ago.

here's what I'd like to do:

set up samba as a server for an office to provide shares accessable by win98
clients. I heve done as much reading as I can but I am unable to answer a
few questions. Can samba be a security provider?

win 98 won't display the 'username' box on a login for a network resource
unless it is set to 'user level' access control, which requires an NT box?
or can samba do this?

so far when I attempt to switch to user level security on one of the 98
boxes, it complains that 'security provider not found' or some such. so I
gave up on using samba as a PDC.

if i then reconfigure the samba machine for user level access, and depend on
win98 to use the network logon name provided at startup, I then get messages
in the log about the user being disabled?

I'm obviously confused, I use samba every day at home, but with a win2k box,
not 98.
What am I missing?
