A simple Yes or no question?

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?

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.
