    Sharing CD:s should be the same as sharing harddisks. I did nothing special anyway.

    When you share CD Drives across Windows 2000 and Windows 98, you have to authenticate Windows 98 to Windows 2000 before it will allow the sharing. To do this, create a mapped drive in Windows 98 that points to the Windows 2000 CD share and tell it to reconnect at login.
