Ok, i have Windows XP Pro on one computer and Win 98se on the other. I have it setup both computers are connected to a hub and the hub is hooked up on to the Modem. they both can Ping eachother but we cant see eachother on Network Neighborhood or Places. i got XP's Firewall down as well as mine to be able to ping eachother. I use Zone Alarm. When i try to set everything up it tries to use these crappy wizard utilities to network. I Know its software problems, and i cant figure it out. I also cant figure out how to configure sharing like i was in 98 on XP, it tells me i should put stuff in the share folder but i cant password protect my drives if i network them, i think they call this the advances Share Utility, advanced my crack! Well if anyone can help please!!!!!!
