Here's one that has more than likely been asked a million times, so I apolagize now if it has. Is it normal for my XP machine (1.4g) to be slower at accessing files from my 98se machine (533mhz) ? The 98se machine is quick at accessing the XP machine's files. Seems to me it should be the other way around or I have something not done right. I used XP to do the network install along with making the disk for 98se.
