You have to ENABLE/INSTALL "File and Print sharing" on your Win 98 machine for you to share files......it is disabled by default.

WinXP has file and print sharing enabled by default.

I wish I had a PC running Win98 to help guide you through the process of sharing. I just included the word "install" to help clarify what you had to do.....Cant remember precisely if Win98 asked for the install cd or not after I checked the "File and Printer sharing" box before.

Lets see:

1. Make sure that File and Print sharing is ENABLED on you win98 box.

2. Can you PING your winXP box???

as far as I know win98 can not handle logging into another machine with a username different from the one it is currently using. You may have to create a user on the winxp box with the same username and password as the win98 machine is using and give that user access to the shared files.

maybe i can help

i have win98se and i have a win2k, win2k is the server, i can login to either computer from the other one, but the username on both is 'Lewis'. these are the network protocols i have installed on the 98 machine:

Client for microsoft Networks
Microsoft Family Logon (dont think u need this one)
3com etherlink 10/100 pci tx nic
dial up adapter (i have a modem as well)
internet connection sharing protocol 3com etherlink
ipx/spx compatible protocol (i use this for tib-sun games across network )
NDISWAN Microsoft virtual provate network adapter
NetBEUI 3com etherlink....
NetBEUI Internet connection sharing
TCP/IP protocols
File and Printer sharing for M$ networks

On my 2k i have:

Client for M$ networks
File and print sharing
Network monitor driver
NWLink NetBios
NetBEUI Protocol
Internet Protocol

i believe u need "NetBEUI" right click and "whats this" comes up with:

"Lists the available network components that your connection can use..."

hmm much boring drivel here

Win98 doesnt send usernames with it's passwords so its unable to logon to a win2k machine unless you give access to "everyone"
