I waited 24 hrs to see if someone could point you to a solution but ....
I have a number of sarge servers running Samba 3.0.14a-3 and serving a
heterogeneous client base including Windows 98 and 98SE clients. It
worked out of the box (for MacOSX clients, I had to explicitly share
users home directories in smb.conf).
It may be something to do with the nmbd settings.
I'm not sure what the issue may be but perhaps posting the smb.conf file
is a starting point?
