    I have a home network with one WinXP Pro machine and one Win98SE machine.

    From my WinXP Pro machine I try to access my C drive on my Win98 machine I am asked for a password. I enter the password but WinXP does not do anything, I cannot get into my win98 C drive.

    Why?

    Anyone can help?

    Go to the C drive on the WIN98 machine, right click on the drive and go to Sharing...

    Then check the option which allows Full Access to the drive without a password.

    You may have done this already, but if not, there you go ;)

    Yes it works fine. But I still want a Password. Stubborn aren’t I ?

    There must be a way for WinXP to work with security witn Win98SE. There has to be a way, and I'll find it.

    thank you
