When I mapping from Windows XP or 2003 network drives, created in Windows XP/2003, i must enter username and password from remote computer.
But, after I press "Map network Drive" in Windows 98SE, i will be prompted only for password.
Password of Administrator on remote computer doesn't work.
How can I map network drives from XP/2003 to 98SE?

When you shared out the W98 drive or folder it would have prompted you for a password. That is the password it is looking for not the user or admin password. Also don't put in a user name just the password.

You have to find out what username the windows 98 machine is logged in as, then create a account for that name on the XP/ 2003 machine. You don't have to give a password to the XP account unless you need the added security, just leave it blank and they won't have to login to access the resources you've assigned them.
