Accessing a smb server at USER level

I have been using Samba for 2,5 years now.  I have had the same problem
since I started - I can not connect the Samba server from a W98 pc when
the server security level is set to USER.  So I have dropped security
and use SHARE instead.  I can see the share from the Window-client, but
when I try to double click i get an error message saying: "Write
networkpassword: , Resourse: \\WALL\IPC$".  I can write whatever I want
- the result is the same: "Wrong password. Try once more".  I suspect
that it is an easy explanation, but I don't know where to start looking
for the problem, since I don't know if the problem is on the PC-side or
on the unix side.  I would be very happy if someone could help me - or
at least direct me to a web-address I can read about the problem.
