Authentication problem on windows 98, on a windows 2003 domain

I'm just migrate a windows NT4 domain to windows 2003. It seems to work well for xp workstations.
I had a problem with all my windows 98 workstations :
Somes, share data with user acces management, and so read the list of permission from my domain.
sometimes (many time in the day in fact) they seems to loose the "contact" with domain controller, and so people who connected to them are asking to put a password (a legal domain user / password) doesn't work.

I saw some article on microsoft support, i follow the instructions but the same.

Thanks for your help

    I ahve seen a similar issue when the clients and servers are not registering their IP addresses with a WINS server.
    Can you check your WINS config?

    Good Luck

    I'm install the patch on two computers. It seems to work better on one of them. But on the other i've got the same problem.
    If someone had got the same experience ...
