    File Sharing

    What is up,

    Verify the Microscoff File and Print Sharing services are installed on both. Disable Firewalling on the XP machine, I think its enabled by default. Ensure your both in the same workgroup and have network connectivity (Ping). You should then be able to browse network neighborhood.

    ok here is the deal

    XP Machine works Fine:
    I can see and use anything on the 98 machine

    98 Machine Doesn't Work:
    I can find the XP machine thru "Start, Find"
    but I can't view it or anything and Network Neighborhood says nothing available

    You must have a user account for the W98 machine set up on the XP machine, with the same logon credentials.

    For example, if you logon to the W98 machine with username John Doe, and password ABC123, then you must set up a user account with those same credentials on the XP machine.
