Will Win98 PCs see shared folders after dynamic disk conversion?

I want to convert my server to dynamic disks (to mirror the C: drive). Will Windows 98 PCs still be able to see shared folders on the server?

Yes. The issue of whether a drive is a basic disk or a dynamic disk has no effect on client systems accessing network shared drives and folders. It is just a different mechanism used by Microsoft OSes to locally manage partitions or volumes on the drive. It also grants you the ability to use RAID drive configurations.
