Problems with security=server and Windows 98 clients

Hello all.

I have a samba server setup using security=server, and pointing to a
specific NT password server.  The Samba server is running Solaris.

Everything works fine in my setup, in that everyone can connect, and map
drives, with their logins/passwords from the NT server.  If they are in
Windows 2000 they can copy files, make directories, delete directories,
etc.  However, if the client is a Windows 98 machine, all thay can do is
copy files.  They cannot overwrite files, they cannot copy directories,
and they cannot delete anything.

It is really confusing, and I can't figure out what is going on.  Does
anyone have any thing I could try.  Here is my global section (personal
information removed) and one of my service sections.  Thanks for any and
all help:
