Nope.  You're wrong. *ALL* (not MOST)

Nope wrong again.  See my previous mail.

Nope.  It does not say that old versions of Win95 don't
support encrypted passwords.  Trust me.  Read it again.
The issue is only that pre WinNT4.0 SP3 and old Win95
would gladly downgrade to clear text if the server did
not support password encryption. Newer version releases will
