    I need some help to what is probably an easy solution.

    We have a work group setup with four computers.

    Computer 1 named Server with Windows 2000 pro used as the server.

    Computer 2 client named Sue has Windows XP pro.

    Computer 3 client named Carry has Windows 98

    Computer 4 client named Jerry had Win 98, but do to crash wiped clean and installed win2k.

    The problem is with Computer 4 client named Jerry, now that it has Win2k installed. When I try to access Computer 1client named Server, I am prompted for User Name and Password. I can access computers 2 and 3 OK, but not the Server. We dont need to use passwords on the other computers when accessing the Server. and we don't use passwords.

    Can someone tell me what is going on and How do I correct this. Does this have to do with some NTFS local permissions. I'm lost!
