    I'm trying to figure out how to file share with 98. I
    think I've set it up on my XP laptop, but I can't see my
    98 desktop. I've enabled file and print sharing but am at
    a loss of what else to do. I have them both connected to
    a router and can suft the web, but no luck with file
    sharing.

  2. Erik,

    I am reading these emails intently. As you may have read
    in my earlier post I was full hardy enough to
    install "netsetup.exe" from XP a file that XP says to add
    to the other computers. it messed up my network that at
    least worked for the internet. I am still trying to
    straighten this problem out.

    Cordially, Glenn

  3. Run XP's Network Setup Wizard on both computers. It will make all of
    the necessary settings. Since you have a router, tell the Wizard that
    the computers connect to the Internet through a "residential gateway".

    Un-install all firewall programs while troubleshooting the network.
