I seem to have mixed things up... it's NT that does not do domain logons
without the server supporting encrypted passwords. 
I have played around with win95-domain logons a bit, and it seem that
win95-domain-logons are, in fakt
.) connecting to the netlogon share, with username & password
.) executing login-script found there
.) merging policies with registry

while nt uses special smb-"api"-calls...

This is, however, only what my impression is after playing around a bit.
