Joining Windows 95 box to SBS 2003

Is it possible to join a Windows 95 box to a SBS 2003 domain.

I have set the domain on the W95 box to be the SBS domain but when I try to login, I get a message stating that either the password is incorrect or I have been denied access.  

I guess this is good because at least its a positive response.

I have also added the W95 box to the list of known client machines on SBS and it is listed as a pre-W2000 box.

All I really want to do is map a drive on the W95 box to a share on the SBS box, but obviously this requires that a domain account is used to allow the access.

Any ideas?

No, it's not possible to join a Windows 95 machine to ANY domain.  Domains weren't supported in that OS.

However, you can attach the machine to your network and access network resources... see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811497 for the how-to... and of course that KB does mention that it's totally non-supported.  

Having this machine on your network DOES create a security risk, so you should be aware of that.

I decided in the end to create a share on the W95 box and allow users to pull the data off directly from the machine before we scrap it, but thanks for verifying.
