Hi all..

I having problems to change the client's autentication password (on Samba
I have only win98 clients...
They can login, but can't change their passwords in Control Painel >
Passwords (the error message says that 'password is incorrect')

I'm running Samba 3.0.2a on Mandrake 9.2 with 50 win98 clients...

I know that this version has a bug for password changing with win2k/xp
clients, but someone knows if win98 clients is affected too ??

Or, please, some hint to how to resolve this ?
