  1. if you turn off ALL the "extra's" that win XP installs as standard, and just run Tcp/IP.. And install a new version of TCP/ip on the win 98 machine... it still wont see it. Bugger. any ideas?

  2. try disabling the network browser in services.

    how do you shoot the devil in the back? what happens if you miss? -verbal
  3. I had a similar issue with my 4-computer LAN at home until I decided to map at least one network drive from the XP system to every other system. Have not had issues since. It does seem to take a while to boot up, not sure if that's related to the drive connections or not. It goes into a funk for about a minute during boot, then pops out and goes to the desktop. Be patient. Once booted, access to the other computers is instantaneous.
