Encrypted Passwords

I am in control of one subnet of 4 computers and in semicontrol of another subnet, also of 4 computers. My subnet has 2 Win95 computers, a Win98/Slackware computer, and a Slackware server. His network has 3 Win98 computers and a Slackware server. The subnets are linked via a VPN. I don't want to disable encryption on my computer and my server, because that would screw up communications with the other subnet.

Preferably, I'd like to tell Samba to handle both plaintext and encrypted passwords. I also wouldn't mind enabling encryption on the Win95 machines (no clue how to do that). Disabling encryption on everything would be a ... pain ... so I'd like to avoid that if at all possible.

Samba can do encrypted passwords, or not, but it can't do both. Unless the Win95 system is the "original retail version" it should be doing encrypted passwords already. And even that version will do encrypted passwords with even the first win95 update installed.
