I have a uniqu network question for the GURU's here. I have a 3 PC network with all the machines running XP Pro and one machine is the Internet gateway and basicly everything runs great. I have an older machine running Win98SE in my workshop that I connected to my main work shop machine which is, of course an XP Pro machine. I used a cross over cable to hook the 98SE and XP machine up with the intent of turning the older machine into a unit that I have multiple CD Rom's in and can access from my home network machines. It was a piece of cake to get the two machines to talk but I cannot access the rest of the network from the 98SE nor can any but the computer that is connected through the crossover cable see the 98 SE machine. This is really not a hot issue but i hate to leave a piece of equipment laying around doing nothing.
