I installed a Win 2003 DC on my network about a month or so ago.  We just realized last week that our Windows 95 box is no longer in the domain.  I suspect that MS no longer supports Win95 so the Win2K3 DC bumped it out of AD when I added it as a domain controller.  MS, as far as I can see, did not make mention of booting Win95 boxes off a 2003 Domain.  I know for a fact that Win98 boxes remain.  My question is this - Does anyone know if my suspicions are correct?

That's actually quite challenging.  I was not exactly a wealth of information about that...

Thanks Yan West.

The info there basically says Yes it does boot them from the domain and refuse their login attempts.  It also provides a fix - Change the Security settings for the domain or update the AD Client extensions software on the Win95 box(or upgrade to a newer OS).  

I wrote the rest for anyone else who has the same issue.  The PC was not a major system nor was it critical.  I just thought that odd and I was unable to locate any info to either confirm or deny what I suspected.  Now I know.  Thank you to all who answered.
