Home network with Win 98 & 2000

  1. Feb 28, 2004 #1
    I'm trying to set up a home network between two comuters. i have both connected to a router and they connect to the internet just fine. On computer has Win 2000 Pro and the other Win 98 SE. My computer with win 2000 is able to see and connect to the win 98 machine but i can't get the win98 to connect to the other. It sees it just fine but when i click on it, the comp asks for a password and it won't accept the one i gave it to begin with. anyone have an easier way to set up the network? i managed to setup a network between winxp and win98 before. win2K seems to not be very user friendly when it comes to networking. i'm networking for file sharing and print sharing. thanks for the help.
