Not sure this is on point, but check out the Active Directory Client
Extensions, that may allow to you connect your Win95 machines with all
the necessary security options set on the server.

My experience is that this client is required to connect Win95 to
Windows Server 2003; your mileage with Samba may vary. I understand it
provides NT LanMan v2 authentication.


The Win9x client isn't available for download; it's on the Win2K Server
CD under the CLIENTS folder (but not on the Server 2003 CD).
