    I have a machine with windows NT workstation v4 service pk 3
    and another machine with windows 98.

    I have GF100TXR 3 Faster Ethernet 10/100M PCI network cards in both machines.

    Having problems networking them together (ie. NT as th client and win 98 as the server). Most problems are with the NT side. What settings should I use? Also having problems with services - don't really know which services I should load (I'm not a windows nt expert).

    Neither Windows NT workstation nor 98 can be server.
    In your case, you can only set up a network of workgroup (in Microsoft's term). Both NT and 98 would be peer. Information is "share" between the two PCs.
    Go to Network in Control Panel, right click your network card from the list and set up a Protocol to use.
    Use NetBIOS / NetBEUI for non-Internet usage.
    Use TCP/IP if Internet will be use.
    If in doubt, use TCP/IP and select DHCP service.
