You are trying to access the shares of the remote computer, which doesn't work for some computers, If you give me the details of the pasword prompt, I can go find the info for you. As for Remote Desktop, you need a copy of the Remote Desktop Connection Software. I have the same problem with connecting via Network Neiborhood (98) to my XP machine, and I forgot the Knowledge base article about it.
