Specific Error Message: "Main password is not correct or access to your logon server is being denied."

One of our sites has been shut down for a week, and when they came back to work yesterday, their Win98 machines would no longer log on to the network (Windows Server 2003 using Active Directory). The very same credentials that would log these machines on the previous week and which are still viable on the newer Operating Systems (2000, XP, Vista) now do not work for the Win98 machines. Now, I know that Microsoft no longer issues updates/patches for win98, but could something in the security updates from last Tuesday 4/14/09 have possibly affected server side Active Directory functionality re: the Win98 machines logons? I am at a loss otherwise. Thanks in advance!
