Setup a username and password on the Win98 machie that matches the user and password of the server. The simplest way to do this is to just add administrator and the password for the administrator account on the Win98 machine. Then reboot the Win98machine.

Just wanted to mention, if security is an issue, don't use the admin account. Setup a user account on the server with the same username and password as the one being used on the W98 machine. That will also work. Again, it depends on the level of security you want.
