Okay, the 98 machine now had the IP 192.168.0.2 and the XP machine is 192.168.0.1, both have the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and both have the default gateway set to 192.168.0.1, now the XP machine can "see" both itself and the 98 machine in the "workgroup" workgroup, but if I try and connect to the 98 machine it says:
The 98 machine on the other hand, can only see itself under workgroup.

At this point I think that the network setup disk would be the easiest fix, so if someone could please mail me an image I would be overjoyed. Thanx.
