W95 works, W98 doesn't - and it's not encryption!

I support a small net with a Linux Samba server and about 5 W95 systems.
This isn't connected to the outside world and the users can be trusted, so
I avoided all the encrypted password hassles by making the shares public.
This worked fine until I added the first W98 system...
The networking is fine on the W98 box - TCP/IP works and all shares can be
browsed. However, if a user tries to access a share, s/he gets a permission
denied error when using the W98 box, and has no problems from the W95
boxes. This is completely repeatable.
A typical share is something like
comment = Temporary file space
path = tmp
read only = no
public = yes
I thought I knew my way around Samba fairly well, but this has me stumped.
It _must_ be a common problem??! So what's changed in W98? Any suggestions?
Thanks and best regards, Paul
