For what it is worth, I decided to not use/setup any W98 clients.

So, instead of deleting 'logon home' from my smb.conf file, I just
changed it to: logon home = \\%L\%u

And automagically, when I click on "Command Prompt", the "dos"
window opens to H:, and HOMEDRIVE, HOMEPATH, & HOMESHARE are set
correctly (at least according to me)!!!!

I guess XP handles 'logon home' differently if 'logon home' has
additional directories listed after "\\%L\%u" (that would match the
"User home directory" field in /etc/passwd).
