Networking different Windows Operative Systems

I have 2 peer to peer PCs interconnected by a router network. I am now planning to install a 3rd PC on this network. The existing PCs have W2K & W98SE respectively as operative systems. The 3rd PC has XP/Pro. Is there any particular thing I must pay attention to while networking all 3 m/cs. Some say that XP & other windows operative systems don’t get along well together. If so should I drop XP and let the 3rd m/c have W2K?Will appreciate any knowledge on this matter.

Does not matter which OS you use. What others say only true for Server/Client kind of company set up. I think the best way to link multiple PCs is to use a router, a router with build modem even better if you want to share internet connection.

By the way, you got router already then your network is not peer to peer.

Thanks for your clarification. Yes my network does use a router, what I did not know was that in that case it is not called perr to peer any longer. Sorry for the mistake.
