As this unit can see the rest of the network but not be seen by any other computers on the network it very much sounds as if you have not shared anything to be seen.

Before any computer can be seen on a network it needs to have something shared with XP this is always the Shared Documents folder but 98 doesn't have this so you need to manually share something.

Run cmd. ping ip of pc . If you get a response plug a printer into the pc and set for sharing. Should be able to see it
