I'm running Samba 2.2.7a as a PDC on a RH9 Server with LDAP
configured only for system accounts. Samba is not configured
with LDAP(still use the smbpasswd file)

I have these errors in the log files:
[2003/06/13 09:24:56, 4] smbd/password.c:smb_password_ok(499) 
smb_password_ok: Checking NT MD4 password
[2003/06/13 09:24:56, 4] smbd/password.c:smb_password_ok(504) 
smb_password_ok: NT MD4 password check failed
[2003/06/13 09:24:56, 4] smbd/password.c:smb_password_ok(518) 
smb_password_ok: Checking LM password
[2003/06/13 09:24:56, 4] smbd/password.c:smb_password_ok(520) 
smb_password_ok: LM password check succeeded

I wonder if this is a problem or is normal not to find the NT MD4 password?

My clients are Windows 98SE that are configured to run in the PDC Domain.

Here is my smb.conf, HTH
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        netbios name = REDHAT
        server string = RedHat Linux 9
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        min passwd length = 1
        pam password change = No
        unix password sync = No
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        log level = 4
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 1024
        domain admin group = inf
        domain guest group = nobody
        logon script = %G.bat
        logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u
        logon drive = h:
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        wins support = Yes
        hosts allow =
