I set Networking up on the XP Desktop First, and created a Floppy when it said, to use on other computers. This I did, on Win98se Desktop and XP Laptop. First I made my Printers and External Hard Drive as Shared drives by right click\Properties\Share. I cannot get at anything on my XP Desktop as it says I have not got permission. Contact Administrator, WHOSE HE? me! So what do I tell him what to do? Now hears anther one, I cannot set NetBIOS over TCP/IP in Win98 as it's grayed out, but I can get at Files printers after some fiddling with networking from my XP Laptop. But it will not hold this if I reboot. So Now What?
