  1. I have the two machines (win2K & win98) conected to a hub. The win98 machine sees and shares with the win2K but not the other way around. When I search 4 computers near me the win98 box does not show. I once had it to where I got an "Internal Error" message from explorer.
    Any ADVICE?

    Win/98 wants to use a workgroup name of WORKGROUP and XP likes MSHOME.
    Just change one to match the other :)
