Hi, as win98 cannot be a real domain member there will be no magic
to do this with ntconfig.pol,
but there is a way i think.
create the right reg file ( for redirect the My documents in win98 )and 
use win98 regedit version , copy it both in the netlogon share ( maybe 
sub folder ) in your default logon.bat insert a check to the inlogging 
win version and invoke a subbatch job which does the reg patch.
I think there must be ways to this with win scripting too.
As the win version vari in some thing at behavior at logon
a general version check is always good to have.
At last mixed setups ( many win versions ) cannot be recommended
especially if you use roaming profile...these problems are not really
samba related , so googling on win admin sites should help you much
about solving such problems
