How do I connect a DOS system to a share on SBS2003?

I have a Win 98 machine running in full dos mode that I need to connect to a share on a Windows SBS2003 server.  The server is the domain controller as well.  The DOS machine needs to have full read and write access to the share on the server.

Can anyone tell me what needs to be setup on the server and on the dos machine to make this work?  Currently, the dos machine does recieve DHCP setting from the server, and can ping the server.  However, when I execute "NET USE f: \\server\share" it first asks for the username and password, then asks for the domain password again, after typing this, it returns:
Error 5: Access Denied.

The sharing security is set for both, Everyone and Guest to have full access to the share.  And the same error is returned, even if i try to login as the administrator.

Any help making this happen would be greatly appreciated.

You will not be able to connect to the server share from dos unless you do the following.

Go to Start -- Administrative Tools -- Domain Sercurity Policy

Go to Local Polices -- Security Options

Scroll down and set the below to Disabled
Microsoft Network Server: Digitally sign communications (always) -- Disabled

Dos dosn't support SMB Signing,  therefore you will not be able to authenticate unless you disable the above
