Replaced a 75Mhz with Compaq 5460 Win98 second edition. A 3com509b NIC was added and installed using drivers supplied w/ card. Am able to browse network and see shared resources on other stations but server will not allow server browsing with out password login. All other workstations access the Netware 4.11 server and previous machine which this (Compaq) replaces did also without password login except during startup. However, now even correct passwords do not work. Is this quirky Win98 2nd ed. problem, Compaq, or what? Suggestion from their IS person (long distance call) resulted in suggesting deletion of password file on server? Am not aware of location of this file. PWL's I know. Deleted those to no avail. This is really frustrating since the network card that was originally used was not hardware compatabile with Win98 according to their HCL. This is my last task with Win98 as I have not had that problem with other OS's before. The same username and password work on the other workstation and allow browsing and mapping galore but not on this one that used to work before it was upgraded.
