I have just upgraded my Win98 client machines to Win2000, and 
now, I am no longer able to connect to my Samba Server, nor any 
of the samba shares.

The ip addresses of the Client workstations are in the range of tto  The ip address of the samba 
server is  The client workstations belong to the 
'workgroup' group.  

Below is a copy of my smb.conf file:

# Global parameters
	workgroup = workgroup
	log file = /var/log/log.%m
	max log size = 50
	interfaces =
	netbios name = otis
	dns proxy = No
	server string = SambaServer

	comment = Home Directories
	read only = No
	browseable = No

	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	print ok = Yes
	browseable = No

	browsable = Yes
	comment = Music
	write list = @peters
	create mode = 777
	directory mode = 777
	writable = yes
	path = /usr/sshare/music

This configuration has worked, and is still working with Window95 
and 98 clients.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Also, where might I find information on using unencrypted 
passwords in Win2000.
