Win98/Vista networking
« on: February 13, 2008, 02:07:09 PM »
I'm trying to get a windows 98 machine to access shared drives on my new Vista machine on my home network but am having no luck. I got the XP machine to access Vista by creating and ID/pwd the same on Vista and XP. I did the same on Win98 but even with the ID having the same password as it does on Vista, when I click on the Vista machine in Network Neighbourhood, it only asks for a password (doesn't let me enter an ID), and no matter what password I type in for the IDs I have on the Vista machine it says invalid.

Any way to get a win98 machine to access shared drives on a Vista?
