When connecting you have to use the domain or a local account that has permission to access that share.
from a command prompt in windows 98 you can use the NET command to do this
net use X: \\servername\sharename /user:domain\username /password:password
replace domain with the workgroup or domain name of the windows server and the username with a username in the domain or local account on the server
replace the password with that accounts password.
