    Well people, it seams that my headache is over (thank
    God). I have modified the GPO in the Domain Controllers
    container of AD, in Computer Configuration -> Security
    Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options -> Domain
    Member: Digitally Encrypt or Sign Secure channel data
    (always) -> Set to DISABLED.

    After making this change, type "gpupdate /force" and this
    will apply the Group Policy change immediately.

    Now, none of the problems described in my original post
    are happening. I hope this helps some who are facing the
    same problems.

    The curious thing in this is that all my Windows 98
    clients had DSCLIENT in the latest version installed. It
    should work fine without the need of this modification.
    But... After doing it my problems are over.

    Just correcting the information in the last post:

    You must change two parameters in the GPO of the domain
    controllers (I forgot to put one of them in my last post):

    Microsoft Network Server: Digitally Sign Communications
    (always) -> Set to DISABLED
    Domain Member: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel
    data -> Set to DISABLED

    Also, you must be sure that the groups Everyone,
    Authenticated Users and Anonymous Logon are members of
    the "Pre-windows 2000 compatible access" group under
    Builtin node in Active Directory Users and Computers.

    Just recalling, you should also install DSCLIENT.EXE in
    your Windows 98 clients.

    I guess this is all now. Since I saw many posts in this
    list of people complaining about password denied problems
    in windows 98 clients with Windows 2000 Server, I guess
    that after doing these changes your windows 98 clients
    should work fine.
