Network win98 & 2000

Hey all
My bud has an interesting problem, networking 98 and 2000 machines. Machines do connect and all but when you try to access the drives (from 98 to 2000) it prompts for password. No password works administrator etc etc.
any ideas??

In Windows 2000, create a new User Account with EXACTLY the same name as that of the registered user of the Win 98 PC.

To find this, in Win 98, right click "My Computer" and select "Properties". In the dialog box, note exactly what is entered as the "Registered to:" entry and use that as the new "User Account" in 2000.
