MS DOS client : solution

I finally found a solution to allow basic MS DOS client 3.0 redirector to work with Samba.
I'm sure you'll find it ugly, but it works. Under CORE protocol, the $"#&^ MS client sends unencrypted
passwords to the samba server (maybe there is no support of encryption in CORE, I don't know).
So as my clients are either W95, WfW, NT or DOS machines, I simply remove the support
of LANMAN1 and LANMAN2 protocols in the negotiation between Samba and the client. All machines
which are not DOS will agree on a higher protocol anyway ...
The only trade-off (?) is that at the first time, the DOS clients have to connect with the
syntax : net use \\machine\share%username [password], no big deal. But I have more than 590 k
of free memory under DOS ...
