I have a Simple Setup at my house, Cable Modem, Linksys Router, and 3 PC's 2 with winXP one with win98se. What do i need to do, so i can see the other computers and get files from them, send and store stuff off them.. without using the remote Connectiong Feature provided with XP...
Not exactly the ONLY thing. You must also make sure that the computer names are different, while the workgroup name must be the same on both. If you are assigning IP addresses manually, they must also be different for each machine.

I think we can assume that since they are all succesfully sharing the net connection then most of it is done, as mentioned, all you need to do is enable file/print sharing, and then on the pc's in the basement (storage or whatever) right click on the folders/drives you want to share, from the menu choose sharing.
Now, the "storage pc's" are these the xp or 98 boxes? if xp, you will probably need to create a user acount for the other pc's that will access it.
If they squeeze olives to get olive oil, how do they get baby oil?
