Is it possible to setup an XP laptop as a client on a small windows 98 network? If so where can I find the information to accomplish this?

Yes, you will just need to configure the laptop with NetBeui and for peer-to-peer networking.

The following links should be helpful:

Delete any spaces in the URLs

Hope this helps. Good luck!

The only thing you need to do is set up TCP/IP to have a unique IP address in the same subnet as the WIN9x workgroup. As you will not be logging onto a NT Network there is no need to join a domain. You do not even need to be in the same workgroup asthe other win9x PC's.

Just jumping in, in XP if you decide to go the
NetBeui route, you need to install it from the
Win XP CD. I think it's in directory called
Value Add. Netbeui does not come setup in a
standard XP installation.
