Home Network: I need help!!

By richlasan ·
The hub is in. The computers are connected and configured. One of them is an NT 4_O. The other, a dual-boot [Win98 and NT Server].
The problems: (a) Win98 sees NT on the Network, but NT doesn't seem to see Win98.

(b) Win98 is not letting me enable "Sharing" its C drive by rt. clicking on it. ["D" drive is my NT Server installation] Help!!!

My guess is that you are using FAT32 and NTFS,if so NT will not recognize a FAT32 partition even in a network setup,you will need to have the partition setup with FAT,on each partition.

Nope, I'm using FAT on the dual-boot client.

Thanks for your input, anyway.

I have to disagree with the first suggestion. I use dual boot Win98/2000 and have WinNT installed into a virtual machine on Win2000. When I run WinNT it sees any and all partitions: FAT32 (Win98), NTFS 4.0, NTFS 5.0
It sounds that the problem may be in not having Client for MS Networks installed on Win98. You will also need to enable File/Printer sharing on Win98 in Network properties. Both NT and Win98 should have the same network protocols installed and configured. The easiest would be to gowith NetBEUI.

I would agree with Answer 2.
NetBeui is the answer for (a).
For (b), is your right mouse button working? Else I don't know why should the system not allow you to share your drive.
