OS level/OS Election Summary for Windows 98

In Chapter 5 of the OReilly Using Samba, Table 5.1 claims that Windows 98
uses a value of 2 for its OS Election Summary.  

This seems like wishfull thinking on the part of the authors as well.

I have verified that Win2000 Professional uses a value of 16, as does
Windows NT Workstation 4.0 and 3.51, so I suspect that Windows 98 uses a
value of 1 like Windows 95 and Windows for Workgroups.

Can anyone confirm this, or send me a trace of a Win98 system causing an
election so I can check it?
