    So I'm floggin' a dead 'orse bringing my Q's in here;; better off just
    posting
    them in 98 general and etc.... yeah?
    Like, if I want to network this comp to a comp with M.E on it, I should
    go to 98 or M.E group. and if I want to network this comp to XP, I
    should go to 98 or XP group?

    WEELLL, I wouldn't be the one to confirm or deny that, BUT it appears there
    is a marked lack of response here.
    Too many forums for the same MVPs to play in. So if its REALLY important or
    needs fixed fast, yeah, post in Win98 general for 98 AND ME, and for XP
    specific try the multi platform microsoft.public.windowsxp.network_web
    group, though certainly the MVPs that monitor 98 general aren't still going
    to make the direction to post XP and 98 networking back here, or least one
    would hope so anyway..
    For your potential CISCO postings, likely network_web would hold the
    parties likely to have dealt with or better understanding CISCO.

    But then I don't want the responsibility for killing a group, so post where
    you want... someone will eventually post an answer, and I see the MVPs have
    dropped back into these older groups, must have finally got their VISTA
    setups running stable...

  6. This group gets regular attention from at least a few MVPs, but you'll note
    that they aren't every day, necessarily. Windows 98 and ME should have no
    problem networking, assuming you have your router properly set up and the
    networking components properly installed. Networking WIn98 to XP/Vista
    sometimes seems to require that you log onto WIn98 with a password, the same
    password always, and that you give WinXP that password. Myself, I've never
    had much trouble with networking any of them. Installing network printers,
    yes, but not sharing files.

    What's your problem(s)? SO far, your own questions have been attentively
    answered save one -- but that one is so old, and you or whomever previously
    responded to you did not include the prior content, so I couldn't figure out
    what your problem is. The problem you'll have posting to XP or Vista groups
    is getting anyone to pay attention that happens to know about the vagaries
    of Win9x systems (including WinME.) Yes, they're there, but there is SO much
    traffic that your question(s) can get lost.
