[Samba] Samba3 in W2k AD, W98 clients need password for Samba share

Hello everybody,

I've setup a file server with Debian GNU/Linux (Sarge) and Samba v3.0.10 
with ACL, Kerberos etc... so I can join the Windows 2000 domain. I can 
use users from domain on file server without problems and Windows 2000, 
XP clients can access Samba shares.

But when I try to connect to \\fs from Windows 98 client (in domain) it 
requests password from me (\\fs\IPC$). I have read through the mailing 
list but haven't come across a userful hint...

Before this Linux, Windows 2000 were doing the job and everything worked 
okay for Windows 98 clients too, so I believe I misconfigured something.
I'm using encrypted passwords in Samba and shares have set: guest ok = no.

What else can I try?! Suggestions are truly wanted!

Thanks, Blaz.
