Yep...I'm a newbie at XP myself...just installed it for the first time today. I think I understand what you're talking about. On 98se you try to access another drive on another machine and it asks for the "share" password before you can access it? I remember getting that all the time when I had Win 2003 trial server installed, but not recently since I reformatted and no longer have the server running.. Could you be a tad more specific?

What I mean is that when I had Win 2003 server trial running, it always asked me for a password to connect to the client's shares (because that's the way I had them set up). Now that I've nixed it (i.e. the server) it doesn't, even though I've changed nothing on the client machines (I'm currently running Win98se on all three networked in. I think that's what you are after, but I wasn't sure from your post as to what exactly you have running in terms of OS /server (if any) -- (specifically the client machines. When you set up the shares, did you set them up to require a password?)

it should work exactly the same. the only way it doesn't ask for a
password is if you are using the administrator's username and password
to access.

if you had already done this in the past with win98, then as I said it
should work exactly the same. Your computers will know when to ask
for a password, unless you are using the admin account. Then it will
just assume that you are the administrator and let you right in.

yes it is, if the admin account is the same credentials as the pc you're
connecting to. It's not going to question you then.

try to connect to a drive or folder with a different user and see.
