Nope. This was a fully functional network for two years. I have
"encrypted" turned on in smb.conf and the Win9x clients are logging into
samba just fine. Their individual scripts run, drives map, etc.,
everything works except the Win9x clients being able to access the nt4
shares. They used to be able to before the upgrade of samba.
