    Everything worked great as far a networking when I was on win98. Then I upgraded two of my 3 computers to win2000
    and now when I go to explorer and click "computers near me"
    I cant get access because on the title bar it says enter network password and then incorrect passord or unknown username
    for //shamu. (shamu is the name of the computer I am trying to access) The it has boxes to enter connect as: and password. Well, I never set a passord! Before I upgraded, When I used win 98, instead of passwords, I just always hit enter because I dont need passwords man. All I can think is when I was upgrading, it said set password and by default, there was one asterik indicating some digit or letter in the top box and the bottom box. Help!
