When i share my drives/folders on my XP machine, and try to access them from the other, i get some errors, and sometimes a prompt to enter a password. What password?

Ok

you know when you logon to your network through any of the PC's you are logging on to the network...

Do this

XP machine , create a administrator/user called test and a password called test

now on the 98 machine login with that account

and you should have full access to the shares on the XP machine ,

i already have an account called ankka (on XP and the other pc). Do i have to check the box that says something like: "Logon to a Windows NT Domain?" and put the name of the workgroup in the box? (maybe a bad translation, god i hate finnish windowses)
Here are the LAN Specs:

XP:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
User: ankka
Workgroup: MSHOME

ME:
IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
User: ankka
Workgroup: MSHOME

Anything wrong with these?
