Windows 98 clients failing to logon to Windows 2000 domain

Hi there, i am having a problem where my Windows 98 clients are failing to
logon to my Windows 2000 domain.

The problem seems to have occured after i recently installed the June 2006
patches ontop my Windows 2000 server. The first thing i noticed after
installing the patches was that my WINS did not seem to be working.

After some research, i noticed that for some reason after installation of
one of the patches, the remote registry service had been disabled causing
WINS to stop working.

After re-enabling and restarting the service, i got WINS to work, but since
then whenever a user changes his password, or we change the password for him
they cannot log onto the network, they just get the message: The domain
password you supplied is incorrect or access to your logon server has been
denied.

The strange thing is that i can logon OK using the username on a windows
2000 client but not on a Windows 98 PC. This kind of points at WINS, i know
but we have uninstalled and reinstalled WINS and yet the behaviour is still
the same.

I also came across Kb842715, and applied the registry modification
recommended there as that was applicable to us due to a change again to our
hidden shares, post-patch installation.

We have tried removing the patches with no luck as our Win98 users are still
not logging on.

Any Ideas?

Delete out all the entries in the WINS Database, but leave any Static
Entries. But if there is only a few, then I would delete them too. Re-enter
the static entries manually,...the rest will rebuild on thier own fairly
quickly.

Make sure the TCP/IP settings on the Win98 machines still point to the
correct WINS *and* DNS.
