Add your smb.conf file; restarat smbd and nmbd with debug
flags set, and look at the log output when you try to
connect.

Win 95 will send passwords in plain text.  NT requries
encrypted passwords.  98 might also.

To my knowledge, you have two workarounds:

i) enable encrypted password in smb.conf

ii)  enable plain-text passwords in your Win98 by setting the following registry value to 1:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\Vnetsup
