    I have a PC running XP PRO with 2 drives with NTFS & 1 as
    FAT32 (Windows 98 Dual Boot),while my wife's PC is
    running ME. We are connected to each other via a CAT5
    crossover cable. XP can see ME.

    The Windows Millenium Edition PC, however cannot see my
    computer, when my wife tried to connect to my computer,
    she is faced with a dialog box requesting a password,
    which I do not remember setting.

    Is there a way that the ME PC can be made to see the
    FAT32 drive on the XP PC. And/Or a way for me to reset
    the password?

    Many thanks in advance, and apologys for any lack of info
    in this request.

    P.S. Both PC's can succesfully ping each other.

  4. On the Windows XP machine, go into the Control Panel, then the User Accounts
    tool. Put the username (and password, if any) on the XP machine as a user.
