I have not tried this but:
Would it be easier to set up an include file based on, say, the ip number
of the windows98 box, which would read in an smb.conf file which uses
encrypted passwords instead of plain text passwords ?
man smb.conf has the details about VARIABLE SUBSITUTIONS and include files.
