How to get Win 3.x, NT, W95 and W98 to all talk to Samba server

A couple of digests ago, someone posted fix to get W'59 and W'98 clients to
be able to talk to a Samba server. We didn't modify the source and
recompile, but instead simply returned the offending switch (nt support) to
the default, and life was fine. Or so we thought.
Now, Win 3.x machines cannot see the shares. So, we add (I believe only)
"browseable=yes" and those work, but now Win '95 without the service pack
fails. Surely there is some way to get all Win 3.x, NT, Win 95 and Win 98
to talk at the same time. Isn't there?
Here's the relevant portion of smb.conf:
workgroup = AUSTIN-LAB
netbios name = TEMPCERB
netbios aliases = TEMPCERB-RW
server string = Samba 2.0.5a, Solaris 2.6
interfaces = 126.96.36.199/24 188.8.131.52/24
security = SHARE
log level = 3
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
load printers = No
wins server = 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124
printing = qnx
mangled names = No
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
max log size = 50
guest account = nobody
comment = VTL-Austin Staging Filesystem (Samba, Read-Only)
path = /tivoli/staging
guest ok = Yes
default case = upper
Also, where can I get info on the particular modes listed under "Sharing"
in the SWAT status page? I'd like to know why I'm getting both "DENY_WRITE"
(which is what I want) and "DENY_DOS" (no idea why).
