I set my desktop (windows 98) as host and my laptop (windows XP) as
guest. After "verifying name.......", I see both computers connected.

BUT I cannot see any file (all files set shared on my desktop). In the
laptop, I cannot find my desktop icon although they are connected! I
go to Microsoft Windows Network in the laptop and click the only
network (hereby ABC). It comes up with a message "ABC is not
accessible. You might not have permission to use this network
resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permissions."

If I disconnect the DCC, I can access ABC network and of course, I
only saw my laptop name. If I connected with DCC, it will show above
message.

I have another laptop running windows ME and it connects with the
desktop through DCC without any problem.

I have tried several times at this newly bought windows XP laptop but
only see it connects to the desktop but no way to transfer files
because I cannot find the desktop icon or desktop shared files.

Please help me!!

This is probably a permissions problem. On the XP machine remove sharing,
reboot, and set the sharing again. If you have recently upgraded to SP2
then new policies have taken effect. Hope this helps.

On the WinXP PC, create local user account(s), with non-blank
password(s), that have the desired access privileges to the desired
shares. Log on to the other PC(s) using those account(s), and you
will be able to access the designated shares, provided your network is
configured properly. Also, make sure that WinXP's built-in firewall
is disabled on the internal LAN connection.

Usually, WinXP's Networking Wizard makes it simple and painless --
almost entirely automatic, in fact. There's a lot of useful,
easy-to-follow information in WinXP's Help & Support files, and here:

If you have a choise on login types, try using windows login
instead of network login when using a win98 host.
