    New DSL and (alleged) network installed. The "network tech" left us with 1 computer able to access the copier for printing and two able to use the internet, I have managed to convince my XP machine that it is on a network and can access the 98 machine and copy files etc. However the 98 machine can't browse the network and the Wizard disk from my machine states that windows can't find the hardware on the 98 machine. I get this from ipconfig /all:

    I can also connect to the printer and get a page of specs by typing the IP address into FF on the 98 machine.
