can't view Windows 98 w/stations in W2K

By HNSF ·
I have many Windows 98SE w/stations that I grouped into a Workgroup called W95. However, when I am in Windows 2000/XP machines, I go to My Network Places, I can see the W95 workgroup, but I can't see the members. I already made sure that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled. Any clue??

Make the XP machine part of the workgroup. On each win98SE Machine, right click Network Neighborhood Icon, click properties, clik Access Control Tab, Check User-Level Access Conrol, Type WORKGROUP in the field which says: Obtain List from:

Make sure you have file and print sharing enabled on all 98 workstations. Next are the IP's in the same network ie 192.168.0.1-254 255.255.255.0 and statically assigned??. If all of these are correct then try adding workstation to W2k hosts file c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc is the path edit hosts file to include the target 98 workstations. Search www.microsoft.com/technet for a tech memo on maually populating network neighborhood.
