Authenticating to Windows 2000 and XP networks
Authored by: domger on Sep 04, '03 10:20:07AM

W2k and WinXP handle correctly connection to Macs because of a better support for multi-user. Win95 and 98 are dummy and are unable to connect to ressources on ANY computer (not just Mac) using a username different from the one use for login on the Windows domain.

Clearly, it means that if you log a Windows 98 box to a domain using a user X, you can't expect to connect to a share on any computer on the network if the user X is undefine on that computer...
