dear all,

i have a new samba server running on:
- SuSE Linux 9.0
- version 2.2.8a

although i had no problem logging on from winxp/2k machines after
joining the server's domain, i am failing to do the same from win98
machines. entered the appropriate domain in control panel.

error message:

i have searched on the web but got no useful help.

the relevant part of my smb.conf follows:

   workgroup = maths
   netbios name = maths
   domain logons = yes
   security = user
   os level = 64
   local master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   domain master  = yes
   log file = /var/log/samba/%u.log
   debug level = 3
   allow hosts = 10.3. 
   deny hosts = all

   encrypt passwords = yes
   logon home = \\%L\%u
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY

   server string = Maths
   add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g users -s /bin/false %u

   logon drive = H:
   logon script = logon.bat

   time server = yes

   log file = /usr/lib/samba/log/%m.log

   comment = Domain Logon service
   path   = /usr/lib/samba/netlogon
   public = no
   writeable = no
   browsable = yes

please help.

bye for now.
