What is happening here is Windows 98 is using it's default username.

You need to change your networking settings to "Network Logon" ( I can't 
remember the exact one, but not "Windows Logon" or "Family Logon" ), This 
is in Network under Control Panel.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
