Is there any possible way to make a Windows 98 machine see a share on a windows server 2003 that is this long   "xxxxxxx xxxx xxxxxx"? Or is it pretty strict that there is no way around this?

Not that I'm aware of, could make a short name share for the 98's but that doubles share admin!

I can make a 2nd share that the Win 98 machines can see? The problem I'm running into is that this share is being used by over 200 people, but two Win 98 machines need to access it now.

I don't think that is possible. Older Windows versions are quite strict in their behaviour regarding names. That's also true for user names for example.
