XP / 98 networked - connection problem

XP / 98 networked - connection problem

XP / 98 networked - connection problem

I have 3 computers, two with win98, one with winxp. The internet connection server is one of the slower computers with 98 on it, since the xp machine is my productivity [graphic workstation].

The two 98 machines see eachother and can access the shared drives. The XP machine is not seen from either of the 98 machines.

The XP can see everyone but it cannot access - it tells me the drive path cannot be found. This has worked in the exact same configuration that is being used now, AND the internet connection sharing works.

The IP addresses and workgroup names are set up properly [as they were last time - which worked]. In the Computer management / groups the 98 machines are each set up with a user account.

What am I missing?
