Windows98 is not able to connect to SAMBA
On Windows98, Microsoft has changed the method on connecting
to shared resources:
Configure the Samba server to support Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) password encryption. Please refer to your Samba documentation for information on how to configure a Samba SMB server.
NOTE: This is the preferred method to resolve this issue because it is more secure than sending unencrypted passwords over the network.
You can enable Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) plain text password use in Windows 98. To do so, use the following steps.
WARNING: If you enable plain text password use in Windows 98, all passwords are sent on the network in an unencrypted format. These passwords may be viewed by anyone using a network monitoring program. If security is a concern for your network environment, do not enable plain text passwords.
You should use the following method only if you do not have access to the Windows 98 CD-ROM. These steps enable PAP password use without the CD-ROM as mentioned in method 2.
