W98 client on nt server lan has lost it's network connection, thought I'd check network settings etc. but..... the client pc's are set up for pupils and have certain things not available ie control panel, obviusly it's retaining it's system policy settings how do I disable these to investigate whats wrong with the network connection?

3 ways:

1) locate the user that has Admin privileges, login under that user and modify/check your settings. Win98's network settings (not mapped drives) are constant irregardless of login.

1) registry key edits in a .reg file and then merge

2) a "work" policy. This actually works in conjunction with #1. You create your super-user and then open your policy file and add that user. Then go through the user's options and clear out the boxes of the restrictions you do not want to apply.

Remember with policies the default is applied first and then a users. So if you have "No Network Neighborhood" checked in the default you must manually clear that box for the user to see Net. Neighborhood on the desktop.
