By default, Vista will try to authenticate with NTLMv2, which was introduced
in NT4 SP4 (i.e. after Windows 98). You'll need to enable lower security
settings on Vista to communicate with Win98, or add NTLMv2 to Win98.
To add NTLMv2 to Win98, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239869
the files for NTLMv2 are not removed by uninstalling the ADCE, you should be
able to uninstall once you have everything working, if you wish.)
To permit NTLM from Vista, open regedit.exe, go to
and change the value from 0x3 to 0x1.
