I had a problem with Win98 and Server 2008. I used the following recommendations:
My Win98 computers had worked well with my Windows 2003 server but when connected to the Window 2008 server they could connect and display the directories but when trying to copy a file would get the "This device does not exist on the network" error. After trying the above recommendation I found that I only needed to change the LMCompatibility setting on the server to 2 and Set the EnableRaw to "0" which resolve the problems for my other Win98 computers with no changes to the workstations.
