    I've never seen a description of the purpose of the three types of
    networking I see on a 98Se machine.

    Windows Logon,
    Microsoft Logon,
    Client For Microsoft Networks

    I'm a NT domain admin, but aside from setting up a few 98 machines as
    home user's Internet PCs for people I have no experience with W/9x
    machines.

    I've started to support a small network of 98SE machines that do
    workgroup file and print sharing. I'm about to set up a SAMBA server
    for 98SE, XP/home, and XP/pro systems.

    What's the difference ?

    Thanks

  2. Windows Logon is for use on a computer that has no network connection
    or one that connects to a workgroup network. If there's more than
    one user account defined, you can specify which one to use. If
    there's only one user account defined, and it has no password, then
    Windows Logon lets you log on automatically, with no logon prompt and
    no need for Tweak UI. All workgroup networking functions are
    available using Windows Logon.

    Client for Microsoft Logons is needed to log onto a Windows NT domain.

    Microsoft Family Logon is similar to Windows Logon, but it presents a
    menu of all know user names and asks you to choose which one to use.
    You can't log on automatically using Microsoft Family Logon.
