Well, Win9x users should not be happy so early. Under Microsoft's official
documentation,
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-026.asp,
Win9x might not be safe as well since RPC is available in all microsoft
OSes...

"Tested Versions:
Microsoft tested Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows NT 4.0
Terminal Services Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows
Server 2003, to assess whether they are affected by this vulnerability.
Previous versions are no longer supported, and may or may not be
affected by this vulnerability."
