I am using a MS MN-700 Wireless-G Bse Station and have
shared files and folders successfully between a 166 MHz
pentium MMx computer with WIN 98 and a second pentium 4
computer with WIN XP sp2. Recently I added a Maxtor
serial ATA drive (D:)  to the XP machine. I have checked
the appropriate boxes to allow file sharing and can see
the serial ATA drive and folders FROM the WIN 98 machine,
but when I try to open a folder I am not allowed access.
I can access the old IDE C: drive on the WIN XP machine
with no problem.

Is there a solution to this problem with the serial ATA
drive?

I bet your formatted the drive with NTFS. This will cause you to have
Windows related security issues. This is only a guess since you didn't
post the exact error message. It is only a logical conclusion from the
fact that you can access the other share.
