I suppose that you could up the log level of samba to get more useful
logs but then you'd have to go through the logs to figure it out.

I know nothing about your smb.conf to be of much use to you here and
merely responded to the little glimpse of errors that you sharing with
us (which I don't think are actually the issue).

I suppose that you could go to windows 98 command line and try to
authenticate manually...

but it's been a long time since I used Windows 98 so you better check
the format of the command via 'net use /?'
