    Hmmm... I'm trying to get this 98SE machine, to connect to a XP machine on a non-domain so that is can access the music folder. How do I do this? The folder is shared to 'everyone' on the xp machine, but when I try to connect to the machine from the 98 machine I get asked for a password, for user /dlieb/$IPC ... How do I do this? Grrr

    Try adding the username of the 98 Machine to the XP machine.

    Tried that.. no luck. I think it has something to do with group policy editor on the xp machine.

    Anyone?
