[Samba] Win95/98 Passwords

	when logging  in from a Win95 PC to a Unix Server without password encryption set to yes I an access the share as 	expected. When logging on from a Win98 PC using exactly the same login id and password and trying to access the same 	share   I am continually asked for a password when trying to map to the share. I have tried both encypt password=yes
	and not encrypt but it makes no difference.

	There is an identical userid and passwd in both unix and smbpasswd. As soon as I plug in the Win95 laptop I can access the 	share using the login and password that doesn't work under 98. The only difference is that under 95 I have to comment out the 	encrypt password = yes line.

	Can anyone suggest a reason why 98 acts differently?
