In Win98, I can "map a network drive" via a LAN network to my linux machine, but when it connects to my linux machine, there is only an option for a password.  Linux uses user names and passwords.  How can I set this up to work with just entering a password?

You need to apply a registry patch.   See /usr/doc/samba*/Win*.txt
