Update each windows 98 client with the wins server address.-wins is responsible for netbios name to ip address resolution for windows 9x computers. we have changed the wins server; therefore the windows 98 clients need to be updated with the address of the new wins server.incorrect answers:a: the lmhosts file serves the same function as wins. configuring both on the network would be a waste of administrative resources.c: dns is responsible for fully qualified domain name to ip address resolution for dns capable clients. windows 98 is not dns capable as it uses netbios names and not fully qualified domain names. windows 98 requires wins.d: wins is responsible for netbios name to ip address resolution for windows 9x computers. we have changed the wins server; therefore the windows 98 clients need to be updated with the address of the new wins server.references:david groth and toby skandier, network+ study guide (4th edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2005, pp. 136-142, 144.
