    Sharing two folders on a W2k machine. Users accessing the files are all on w98se. The problem is, through Network Neighborhood the users can only see "Folder A", not "Folder B", therefore I can only map to "Folder A". Why can't I see "Folder B"? I've done this countless number of times, but have never seen this before. The properties of the proposed shared folders are identical, and network setups on all machines are the same.
    Anyone with an answer?

    You mentioned the share permission but have you checked the file permissions? Permission are combined before access is granted. Also check the groups listed, such as Everyone.

    Are either of these folders hidden administrative shares? (with a $ in the share name?)
    Either way, what happens if you type in the exact path to this folder at start>run? \\computername\share Does it open or do you get an error?
