Hmmm....[puts on thinking cap to fill in the lack of 
details provided...]

I'm guessing you need to do one of two things

  o if using clear text passwords, then enable 
    plain text on the Win98 client (see Win98_PlainPassword.reg
    included in the Samba course).  You may also need to set 
    a password level value (see smb.conf(5) for more information
    on this.

  o enable 'encrypt passwords = yes' on the Samba host 
    and read docs/textdocs/ENCRYPTION.txt for more details

If neither of these work, then give me some more details 
and I will responsd as much as time allows.

[not directed at Carl in any way.  I've just seen (and responded) 
to so many of these types of posts lately it seems]

Why do people feel that posts like this will solicit 
more help?  Sadly enough they invariably do, and we seem 
to be re-inforcing this

Cheers, jerry
