I know that Windows 98 has problems with network shares that has spaces at the name share. Maybe your problem is with the share name of the folder try to change it for something that not includes the "-" character. If you can't create a new folder and share it with a name that includes the "-" character, if you can't see this new folder there is your problem.

Hope this can help.

Win9x has the 8.3 limitation. Any Shares that are longer than 12 charaters and contain spaces will not be accessible. As I understand it there are no fixes for this - except to upgrade 9x clients to nt or above. Hope that helps.
