Win98 User Accounts getting locked out on Win2K3 DC

    Hey all,

    I have a customer that has a mix of WinXP/2000/98SE clients on a Win2K3
    domain. Every day or so, the user account logged in on a 98 box gets locked
    out on the DC. This is after logging in just fine in the morning, working
    half the day, and then all of a sudden not being able to use network
    resources. Also, this is not limited to a specific user account or Win98
    machine. It seems to happen any random day to any random user logged into
    any random Win98 box. If I check the security logs it records a logon
    failure about 3 times per second for that account.

    I know, I know, I know that the obvious solution is to get rid of the 98
    boxes...but I need to come up with a more prompt solution for the short
    term.

    Any clues????

    TIA...

    I'm having this exact same problems with Win98SE clients as well. Does anyone
    know of a solution?

    Thanks.
