    Im having a bit of a problem... I would like to connect to a Win98 machine with my WinXP machine and Vice Versa... Is there a way I can do it... I can connect Win2000 and WinXP together but I just can seem to get Win98 to do the same...

    Thanks!

    You can if all of your networking protocols are the same tcp/ip settings, the same newtork or workgroup name and if you login to the computers, you must use the admin login. Hope that helps and Happy holidays.

    Easiset way to set up a basic peer to peer between 98 and XP is to run the network setup wizard on the xp machine..then take the cd and put it in the 98 machine and run the network setup wizard again.


    reboot and then see what happens.
