Hi Sahil,
You have to check your server master role.In that please find your PDC Emulator master domain controller is up and running. A client computer running pre-windows 2000 operating system will get authenticated by PDC Emulator .If the server which is functioning as PDC Emulator couldnot be contacted , then you will get the above error message.Hope you are aware of the Server Master roles.

Have you tried deleting the user's account from both the domain controller and the Windows 98 machine and recreating it?

Good luck

two things: make sure wins server is up and running and win98 computers can find the domain with no problem; second, pdc role can be seen using a command-line utility called ntdsutil.exe (by MS)
more roles info at;en-us;255504

Good luck
