Aren't you confusing Windows / Unix user names and Windows machine
names? Are the Windows 98 machines asking for user/password when they
are switched on? Please try this:

1) On "brian" machine, select "client for microsoft networks" under
network properties (now it'll ask for user/password when it comes up).

2) Log into the machine using "brian" as user and whatever password you
defined on the samba machine;

3) Try to access your samba shares now.

Hope that helps. If not, you'll have to provide more info. Luck.
