This might be DNS related - tcp/ip will
use wins address resolution if you set
it under network->tcp/ip->properties.
Use winipcfg->advanced on the 9x machine to see the DNS and WINS settings.

kind regards,

I got this working without a hitch on my systems. Desktop runs Win2k Pro and portable runs win98. I'm not sure where your problem lies at this point since its not very clear what exactly is going on but you have to start troubleshooting at the basicand that is:
make sure you got the right IP addresses e.g pc1 w2k= 100.100.100.2
pc2 w98= 100.100.100.4
Next make sure the subnet mask on both systems is 255.0.0.0
also make sure they are in the same workgroup. Default Win2k calls this workgroup. So both systems should be workgroup or change it to whatever you like.
The computername should be unique.
Restart both systems and when you're back at the desktop on your win98 system open a dosprompt and type ping 100.100.100.2 and enter. If youget replies back you have a good connection. next you make sure you share at least one folder on each system and chech through network neighborhood if you can connect to it. let me know if this works for you.
