temporarily disable your firewall to see if that is the problem.

(IF you are using zone-alarm you will find that once the connection has been made you can switch it back on and the connection will still be usable).

you may want to give a little info as to the other machine and what proceedures you have observed to set up your network in order to get more useful help.

I am currently using no firewall, altho I should reinstall it, I am using 2 benq pci network cards with crossover cable to each machine, i can use the internet from my 2ND manchine using the 1st machines modem (adsl) but i cannot see the 1ST machine in the network neighbourhood list of computers, even tho i can use internet. I want to be able to access files on the 1st machine and i cant do it from my 2nd machine, I have assigned the first pc and second machine both with subnet so I should be able to view the files both machines are win98

We are assuming that you have set the shared resources that you can access accross your network. Have you set aech drive to share? this is different to the internet connection sharing
