Hi, I have a client who wants me to network her computers. One computer is 98 the other computer XP. The XP computer's Windows file is titled WINNT which I assume has some of the Windows Networking OS properties (YIKES!)

Anyway, I added netbui files and then went to device manager to add them. When I tried to add the protocol, netbui was not one of the options. I know that you don't have to have them with XP but I have found when networking XP with 98 it is much easier.

I did double check to make sure that I had put them in the proper folders. Any suggestions?

Why would you go into Device Manager to add them to the Network card properties. You need to go into Network settings to do that.

Oops! I typed in device manager but meant network connections properties! I looked in protocols in the properties of network connections. Sorry about that.

After double clicking on Protocol in your lan properties, click on Have Disk. Put your XP disk in the cd drive and navigate to where netbeui is located on it.

NETBEUI is not a standard protocol for XP, but it is available in the VALUEADD folder on the CD. There are also copies of the two files available for download, though my previous link to a downloadable copy is bad. You need to copy the two files to the correct directories, then NETBEUI will show up just like the other protocols.

I ZIPped up the two files and the instructions and attached them to this message. :)
