We hare one NT Server 4.0, five NT workstation 4.0 and two Windows 98.

The Server is the database server, and there are two printers connected with workstation acting as printer servers.

Between the NT Server and Workstation, it is possible for us to login and use the printer or share the folders. We can login using Win 98 into the Server by Domain, but we are having problem to use the printers in NT Workstations with Win 98 at the same time like NT, because by clicking the NT WS at Network neighborhood, it will only ask for password, not username, so it is not possible to login. How can we solve this problem?

The problem is that your Win98 stations are trying to login to the NT Workstations with their user names.  On the NT Workstations, create the same user names and passwords that use the Win98 machines and give them the appropriate rights to print.  This should solve your problems.

Yep.  Each Workstation has its own security database.  In a domain, the security is on the PDC.
