    Can anyone tell me of any problems (or lack of) when you have different levels of Windows on the PC's that are being networked.

    In my case I have:2 at '98, 2 at XP and 1 with ME.

    These computers were all supplied with the software already loaded, so I don't have the original disks to bring all the PC's to the same level.

    No problems, especially when one has XP. The XP one will create a floppy disk for use on the others to make them all work together.

    If you use a router, shouldn't have any problems at all.
    I had Win 98, 2000, ME and XP and all worked fine.
