    I am trying to follow the instructions in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article -
    239869 but I'm having trouble performing the REGEDIT steps.

    The original instructions are listed below. However, I don't see any "Add
    Value" option on the Edit menu. The options I see under edit are

    New, Delete, Rename, Copy Key Name, Find, Find Next

    Under the New selection there are the following options: Key, String Value,
    Binary Value, DWORD Value

    Another issue is that there is already a key listed with the name LSA. Do I
    create a new entry below that key?

    Any idea how to execute the MSFT instructions (listed below) given what I'm
    seeing in the REGEDIT screen?



    =================== ORIGINAL MSFT Instructions below

    To enable a Windows 95/98 client for NTLM 2 authentication, install the
    Directory Services Client. To activate NTLM 2 on the client, follow these

    Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).

    Locate and click the following key in the registry:


    Create an LSA registry key in the registry key listed above. On the Edit
    menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:

    Value Name: LMCompatibility
    Data Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 3
    Valid Range: 0,3

    Description: This parameter specifies the mode of authentication and session
    security to be used for network logons. It does not affect interactive
