    Default Win 98 and XP Network problems

    This is the Setup I have:
    98 Server:Router
    2 PCS: Win98
    2 Laptops: XP
    Win98 PCs can see each other and the router.
    XP Laptops cant see the win98 machine but can see each other. I created a networking disk from XP and installed it on all 5 machines with the same workgroup name.
    The 98 machines cant see XP either.
    They are all set up to obtain a IP automatically. What else can I do to help XP detect 98 or 98 detect XP.
    IS there a firewall or something blocking
    When I try to search the network that 98 machines are not even listed.
    Cheers for the help

    Dont obtain an ip automatically on the XP pc's. Click on the LAN icon, and give them the ips 192.168.0.1 x .02 etc. Same as the 98 PC.

    What version of 98 are u using? 98 or 98 SE? You need SE, if you want to use ICS (so, the XP PC's can get onto the net). The normal 98 doesnt support ICS (internet connection sharing).

    Also what v of XP have you got? Home or Pro? If it's PRO, open Windows
    Explorer, Tools/Folder Options/View/SImple file sharing, tick this.

    Then share a folder on the XP PC's. Are you using a HUB? Don't bother using the Network Wizard. It sux, and makes things worse. You DONT haveta use it. A network will work, without using it at all.
