There is a way to do this .....
You can edit the policies using poledit. You can set that no one can log on
to the computers unless authenticated by a server. Here are a few resources
for you to read..
I have done this many times its almost like xp or w2k standard network
settings.. But you will have to write a login script to get the win98 to map
to the home folder manually.
Let me know if you need help.
