I'm having trouble connecting a computer running Windows 98 to one running XP. There's a network card in the Win98 connected to an integrated controller in the Dell/WinXP. I've run the network wizard on both machines. Both say it was successful, but the computers don't find one another.
Something tells me it has to do with the network protocols (netbios or netbeui).

Have you "shared" your C: drive on your 98 machine?
