Just a thought - if it is win98 v.1 I think it had passwords in plain, not 
encrypted.  Win98SE uses encrypted by default IIRC.  Certainly we have had 
two Win98SE boxes running correctly on this lan.  The users had accounts on 
the server box with login and password identical to the smbpasswd entry.  
Win98 doesn't support the option to send a different one.  HTH
