I am running Windows XP Pro on one system with administrator rights. On the other system is windows 98 with the documents files shared, full access and no password required. On my XP system I can see the other computer, but when I try to browse the computer for the shared folde, I get the error "\\Win98 is not accessible. You might not have the permission to use this network resource." Any ideas. File and print sharing are enabled on both computers. The 98 system can browse the xp system.
The XP firewall is on by default have you disabled it, please forgive me asking this again but it is so easy to miss it I had the same problem as you and did not realise that XP firewall was set to on as default.
on win 98 right click on the folder/s you wish to look at/share select properties then the sharing tab you should have shared as checked and access type full checked i dont know if this relates to your problem but it solved the same error for me
