No, you'd be seeing messages like bad magic 0x42424242 and the
like if it were a tdb corruption problem.  The message you
listed is normal for Samba 3 print, not indicative of

You can try turning up debugging on the server to see if
anything looks unusual, and checking out the event viewer on
the client.

Other than that, I suppose just making sure the drivers you
have installed are suitable for W98 clients is a given, and
that NETBIOS is working correctly since that's required for
