The first thing I'd check is if the Win 98 box is trying to use the
NetBEUI protocol to access SMB services, rather than NetBIOS over
That will cause the symptoms you're seeing. Generally, just to avoid 
problems, I go into the control panel on Windows machines and remove
completely. I believe there is a way to set priorities, but I haven't
that personally.
