NTserver/windows98

I'm practically new at networking, but I've attempted to create a domain on a NT server (PDC), and would like to include a win98 box in the domain.  At this time, I can't see the win98 box.  Will I need any additional software (nwlink, nwclient 32)to link the boxes up? Hardware and protocols are in place including a 5-port hub.  Thanks for your advice.

What you need to do is the following:
1. Install Client for Microsoft Networks on the W98 computer.

2. Make sure that the Workgroup name of W98 is the same as the domain name of NT.

3. In the properties of Client for Microsoft Networks, select Logon to NT Domain, so that W98 users can be authenticated by NT.

4. Make sure you have the same protocol running on both computers: TCP/IP, NetBEUI, IPX/SPX (NWLINK).
If you opt for TCP/IP, make sure that the IP addressing is appropriate, eg.:
WinNT
IP address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Win98
IP address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

In the end, you will need an account(s) created on WinNT for W98 user(s), which is done is User Manager for Domains.
