    I have a network setup using a linksys router. I have a laptop using XP Home and a desktop using Win98 SE. When I view the network places on my laptop I can see the Win98 machine just fine. I can NOT see the desktop using my laptop though. What am I doing wrong????

    Bacically XP can see the 98 machine but the 98 cant see the XP machine.
