  1. Having a strange problem, Have mutiple Win98 and XP
    machines on a network. The one Win 98 computer that I'm
    having trouble connecting to with any XP machine on the
    network. I see the files and printer on the Win98 machine
    but when I click on it the following message comes up
    "(computer name)is not accessable. You might not have
    permission to use this network resource. Contact the
    adminstrator of the server to find out if you have access
    permissions. The parameter is incorrect."
    Now any of the other WIN 98 machines can connect ot this 1
    computer and this 1 computer can connect to any of the
    other computers (both XP and 98) and access there files.
    Any suggestions?
