Connecting Win98 laptop to Win2k with Terminal Server

I have a Terminal Server on my Win2k server, but I cannot connect to it using my Win98 laptop. That is, the Win98 computer cannot connect to the Win2k server. How do I go about setting it up for '98? My Win2k machine can connect!
I'm including this one mainly as a teaching exercise since I'm afraid that we don't have enough details to provide much of an answer. I'd check against the error message reported when the client can't connect, for a start. Can the Windows 98 client see the terminal server otherwise, just not when attempting to set up the RDP connection? Many factors can prevent a particular client from being able to connect.
