I have a win 98 machine, and it wont connect to the domain, properly. It comes up on startup with client microsoft box, where you type in your user name and password, it logs in fine, But no mapped drives are there, i cant browse the network. But the funny thing is you can access the internet and that is ran Via the server. So im not sure what is going on, any ideas? thank you

    i got it to work, the outcome of this problem was that i downloaded something off a website called Active Directory Client for win98. I downloaded that followed some instructions and ran the software, this now works. So if this helps anyone out there then please use this. Its called DSclient. Cheers Craig
