    I have an old Dell Dimensions XPS R400 running Windows 98. Very awesome shape running perfectly. I got this machine from a business that I work for. It was just sitting there for years! It's got all the old stuff for vinyl cutting and coloring. Included is a Roland ColorCamm PRO PC-600. all the disks and manuals, all the vinyl, extra ink ribbons, extra blades and WOW I want to get this going so bad! Here is my problem. With this being from a business it is not letting me access anything because as soon as it powers up after the windows 98 introduction the first thing that pops up in Enter Network Password...it requires a User Name, Password and Domain. No matter what info I put in these fields it says Microsoft Networking: No domain server was available to validate your password. You may not to able to gain access to some network resources. I click ok and the windows 98 desktop appears. A pop up shows saying problem with shortcut: the drive or network connection that the shortcut "WinZip quick pick.ink' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and the try again. I push ok. Now everything is hooked up. The roland printer is working, it's connected to the computer. I try to access some files. I can't. It can't find a network. Can I ditch this network thing and install the Signlab software and create stuff myself? I dont need their old files because I have all the installation disks and manuals.
