Hello,

Windows 98 was never a good client for a domain. That is the home version, you should use Windows NT instead. Anyway you can use some startup script witch can solve the problem (ex put a shortcut of the script in the startup directory of W98 machine)

yeah, win 98 does not have the correct NTLM authentification that 2008 requires, so you either need to dumb down the Server authentification to win98 level or manually put the scripts on the machine as already suggested.


I hope this helps !
