How do I create a script so that a none domain client (windows 98 pc) can access a shared folder on our server?

Or is there a way to allow it with permissions?

Ideally get rid of windows 98 clients - they cannot participate properly in the domain and a a security risk. You can't use a group policy as Win98 will not apply it - you will need to create a script on the client to map the drive.

I wish I could but the company I work for is running an application that can only be accessed from windows 98. And yes all the windows 98 remarks I'm going to read I've said myself when I first started working here. :)

I think I just have to put the database on a non-domain computer that has open access to it.

You can still put the database on the domain and link to it as you would a peer-to-peer network specifying a valid username/password that has rights on the domain.

I can do that but the clients don't think to do that. So I was wondering if there was a way to put a
net use ....
command line in the netlogon script that will
a)map to a shared drive
b)automatically insert the valid username and password

would a username look like this?

net use h: \\server\application domainname\username password
