windows98 client looses connectivity with windows2000 server if its idle

  1. I have a windows2000 server with Active directory,WINS and
    DHCP running on it.
    Windows2000 professional clients are connecting & working
    fine.
    But windows98 clients looses connectivity with windows2000
    server if the PC is idle for a while.But when the mapped
    drive network is clicked again,it gains back connectivity.

    The 98 PC's restarts automatically sometimes.

    I had tried to assign satic IP address for the PC,add
    server IP address in the host.sam file.But still the same
    problem.
