If samba isn't authenticating win98 clients, esp. if you get a password
request for IPC$, try editing the win98 registry.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\VNETSup and
add a new DWORD entry. Name it EnablePlainTextPassword and set it to 1.
The capitalization of VNETSup may be different but the rest is exactly as I
found it on my system. After a reboot of the win98 machine, I could browse
all the samba shares.
