Samba Migration

Well, I have successfully migrated about 75 Windows 95/98 machines over to
using Samba as a PDC, it works better than I expected.  Much faster than NT
or OS2.  However I have a few questions?  There are a couple of machines
that will not use the Samba box to authenticate.  I know that the network
config on these machines is correct as they were working before, and the net
properties have been set the same as all the other ones that actually work.
These machines are all on extremely old versions of MS Win 95.  I think it
has something to do with the MS Networking Client for Windows 95, does
anyone know where I can find an updated version that is compatible with
Samba (2.2.idontknow).  Or if there is any other possible workaround.  These
machines are schedules to be upgraded to w98, but I need something quick in
the mean time.
