    I have 2 Win98 PCs connected together thru a Broadband router with
    print server. All works well. When I installed all this I was
    prompted to enter a NETWORK password which I did on both PCs. Note
    that I am NOT using a WINDOWS password. Now I wish to remove the need
    for entering a NETWORK password. MS Article *152104 refers to
    removing the WINDOWS password but Not the NETWORK password. The
    Windows help file says I should use the "Other Password" area in
    Control Panel/Passwords but this area is Greyed out. How do I remove
    the NETWORK (not WINDOWS) password?

  2. Win98 doesn't check the network password unless you're logging into a
    server domain. In a workgroup like yours, you can enter anything or
    nothing at the network password prompt and click OK.

    Win98 does check the Windows password, so remove the Windows password.
