Unbuntu SMB share and Windows 98 clients

Have Ubuntu 16.04 running as a VM.  Would like to utilize to allow *Windows 98 clients (yes I know Windows 98) to connect to share files.
 Keep getting a IPC$ password prompt, but the password doesn't work.   This would be a completely segmented and closed network - no Internet.
Cannot get the clients to connect to the SMB share.

*The customer currently uses old cardmaking printers and software that only works with Windows 98.  A Novell server is still being used to share
files.  Want to replace the Novell fileserver before it dies.   Eventually, they will be replacing all the printers and software, but who knows when!
