What does smbstatus say about the connections from the win98 clients?
Which username? The owner of the proccess is not that relevat,
because smbd's swap the effecive uid. If smbstatus shows root as
username that's the source of your problem and a huge security
problem! Who is the unix-owner of files created by win98 clients?
The source of the problem may be that you have "map to guest = bad
user" and "guest account = root". Check you smb.conf, use testparam.
