In a five PC home network 3 pcs are running win98 and two are running winXP.

When the XP pcs are off i can see the 3 win98se pcs in Network Neihborhood. As soon as either or both of the WinXP pcs are on, i cannot see my win98 pcs. They all disappear, but i can communicate with them if i go through explorer and type the name and folder i want to access manually. In addition i cannot connect to a shared printer connected to one of the XP machines, but i can connect to the printer connected to one of the win98 machines.

I only have full control of the win98 machines. The two XP machines belong to my brother and sister and the only thing i can do is just unplug them from the hub.

Thanks for any advice given.
