    Im trying to access a share on my windows 2003 server with
    a Windows 98 machine ( not Second edtion) when i click on
    the computer (the windows 2003 server) in network
    neighborhood it pops up a logon screen that reads "You
    must supply a password for this connection" then under
    that is Resource: \\server\IPC$ under that is a box for
    the password. Resource cannot be changed and is not in a
    box it just reads Resource: \\server\IPC$ in text. Is thre
    anyway i can get around this or does Windows server 2003
    not support windows 98 or does windows 98 just not logon
    to a NT machine...Please HELP!!!

    Thank you

  2. The Windows 2003 Server needs to have a user with the same name (and
    password, if one is used) that you log onto your Windows 98 PC with.
