    I have upgraded my network from SBS2000 to SBS2003 /so Windows 2000
    Server to Windows Server 2003/.

    In SBS2000 network all client are able connect anonymously (using user
    name, that does not exists on server, so they are logged as Guest (Guest
    account is enabled with empty password)) to network shares hosted on
    Windows 2000 Server.

    When I switched to SBS2003, Windows 98 clients are not able to connect
    annonymously to network shares (using map network dirive). (Other
    clients as Windows 2000 and Windows XP can connect !!! and more Windows
    95 clients can also connect !!!)
    When I am logged to Windows98 as "user1" and user1 does not exists on
    server, I cannoct connect and error "Device does not exists on network"
    is returned !
    When I am logged to Windows98 as "user2" and user2 exists on server, I
    can connect and all works fine. (and also when I am logged to Windows 98
    as Guest with empty password, I can connect to network shares !!!)

    I have trying all : Installing IE6SP1, installing dsclient.exe,
    disabling "Digital signing" in group policy, setting "Let everyone
    permission apply to anonymous users", ...

    And one interesant point, when I install dsclient.exe on Windows 95,
    Windows 95 is no more able annonymously connect (before install is able)

    Can anyone help me ... is there fix ?
    Thanks very much
