hi, I connect my two computers together using LAN. I can see the shared file in PC (win 98) from PC (win 2000), but I could not see the file in win 2000 from win 98. Should I setup anything in NETWORKING in PC (win 2000)? Please help. Thanks

I don't like to be discussing the intricacies of windoze networking, and I'm not even sure this is the correct forum to be doing so.
1) Are they in the *same* workgroup
2) Which protocols are you using, if just networking two pc's together, I would suggest netbeui rather than tcp/ip if you just want to share files. - if using tcp/ip, then set both network cards to use DHCP, they will assign themselves a default address in the range 62.x.y.z if no dhcp server is present (probably)
3) In order to connect to w2k, the win98 machine will have to have a user on the 2k machine the same name as used to log in to the w98 machine.
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
