I am trying to add compaq pentium4 with windows xp preinstalled onto a network of windows98 and me computers. It does not recognize any computers on the network. It is a LAN network with 5 computers and peer to peer networking. When I search for computers none show up. Netbeui is not on the new computer. It has been suggested I need that, but I do not know where to get it (I don't have the windows xp cd but I could order it if needed). All computers have the same work group name. I have tried running the wizard and reinstalling all the protocols etc.

I haven't had enough patience to figure out why XP is such a pain when it comes to viewing other computers in a workgroup. Microsoft doesn't 'support' netbeui anymore but they did include it on the XP cd. I can send you the files from the cd (only 3 total) if you want to message me with your email address. It works great - I don't care what Microsoft says!
