Samba 3.0 to 3.2 upgrade Windows 98 clients

In the 3.2. branch the Samba team changed the default values for lanman auth and client lanman auth to no, so Windows 98 clients using lanman protocol for authorization/authentification can not longer log on.

Set in the main section of smb.conf

lanman auth = yes
client lanman auth = yes

run

testparm

to check your samba configuration for errors. Then reload config with

smbcontrol smbd reload-config
smbcontrol nmbd reload-config

Log on for Windows 98 clients will work fine again.
