I am running a windows 98 network with plain text passwords.
I currently have to install 20 windows 2k machines to the network , is there a way to do this with plain text paswords , but still enable me to have domain logons.

as if i have to unenable plain text passwords on all the machines it will take me forever (40 something machines)  and there is also an additional problem of getting access to the buildings.

smb.conf to follow
