Can/does it do it? i.e. if i have a Samba server in a mixed environment of Win98 and > Win98, is it necessary to have a FAT32 filesystem for the clients to use, or can i use Ext2 and have Samba translate for the clients?

no,  not at all,

you can have whatever file system you like on the samba box.  the operating system on the server takes care of talking to the disk.

hi,

much the same way that a win98 machine can use the ntfs disks on a windows server..
