I have a question (and possibly a suggestion).

You mentioned that "Since the object of using Samba is partly to access a
Windows 98 machine,.."  What exactly do you mean by "access"?  Do you need
to connect to the Win98 box to copy/move files between Linux and Win98?

Then, can't you use smbclient instead?  I remember I was able to use
smbclient to connect to Win98 (last done 6 months ago).
