    Hello.

    I'm interested in networking my laptop running windows 98 to a friends computer running windows XP. Both computers are/have been networked to other systems running the same version of windows before. (Mine being Windows 98)

    I was wondering if anybody could tell me if I would have any problems connecting the two, what those problems are, or any other advice at all...

    Thanx.

    MolsonMan.

    xp can be a pain for some reason, still haven't figured out why ours has trouble seeing xp. Works most of the time, then it gets a hair and can't find the xp computer from either 2k or 98

    Good readme here
