    I have a Dell E-520 (Vista Home Prem.) & ,and a Dell laptop (Win-98 2nd Ed) on a home network. I have the password set the same on both.
    Both system sees each other on the network but when the 98 system ask for a password it will not accept the passwords I have entered for both computers. I assume the passwords that are needed are the ones used for Vista log-on. Is that correct?
    I have selected "Client for MS Networks" on the 98 system.
    The Vista computer displays everything from the 98 machine fine, but I cannot get past the password on the 98 system.
    I assume some of you guys have long past forgot Win 98, but hope there are some young folks who still have good memories available.
    I know asking password questions on any forum is a no-no but in this case I am not trying to crack one, just trying to get one to work.
    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Russ
