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.
