2 network cards and a crossover calbe. WinXP should be albe to talk you through it.
Actually, WinXP will "walk" you through it, not "talk" you through it - that may come with Longhorn!
I dont think that there is any way around this problem. You need to have XP on both machines.
This any help. How to share a broadband connection using Windows 98 and windows XP click here
You can connect two PC’s together with a crossover cable, both PC's should have a network card fitted.Configure the XP machine to be the host and by following the wizard, all should be fairly straight forward.The wizard can be found under Start-Connect to-Show all connections, then press “set-up home or small office network” under Network Tasks. Just follow the directions; you will need a floppy disk.As a general rule it's best to temporarily disable any firewall software you may have. Hope this helps.
Marky_Bhoy - what you say is true, to a point. If XP has NTSF formatting, then Win98 will not be able to read it. But if both have Fat32 then no problems should be encountered.
Be assured that you can network a Win XP (NTFS) with a Win 98SE (Fat32) using a crossover and two network cards.It's reasonably straight forward, just follow the instructions. There will alway be people here to help if required.If I can do it anyone can.Zed.
zed650 - is it possible for the Win98 to read the XP NTFS formatted machine?
Diodorus SiculusBoth machines can read/Write etc. to each other as long as the folders/files are set to share over the network.I'm not to clever with the TLA's but as far as successfully connecting these two types of format over this kind of network connection then yes it is possible.oldstinkyPlease post any response to the thread for the benefit of others.
