The password for the user that Win98 thinks you 
are logged in as.  

  * Make sure you have the Client for MS 
    Network installed.  
  * Delete all *.pwl files in \windows

* Change the Win98 workgroup to OLDBS and 
 workgroup parameterr to OLDBS
* Reboot the Windows 98 clients.
* Stop Samba (see below)
* remove browse.dat (notmally in /usr/local/samba/var)
* Restart samba

You should kill all smbd and nmbd processes.  
You might want to consider runnign smbd and nmbd 
as daemons rather than through inetd.  Easy to manage 
in my opinion.

Feel free to send me your smb.conf if you still 
have problems.
