Networking a Windows 98 PC to a Windows 2000 PC

Danny R Mcgrath

Hi, I am new at working with 2000. I am trying to Network a 98 PC so it can see files on a Windows 2000 Professional PC. I have setup the use account but we can't login to the 2000 PC.

Do I have to set any specific user permission on the 2000 box? We use the Novell NetWare client to login to the PC, do I need to have the user account on the 2000 PC the same as the 98 PC?

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Possibly not much help to you, but I've had the same problem at home. One
thing I've found is that if your win2k machine's HDD is formatted as NTFS
rather than FAT32 then it's not likely to work (or at least I've yet to find
out how), as Win98 doesn't know how to access the drive.

Thanks, the HD on the 2000 PC is NTFS. Now we have other 98 PC that can see my XP Pro box on the network and they do log inot my and backup their files. Is is due to security rights on the PC's?

Make sure all computers are in the same workgroup and that all useraccounts exist on all computers (W2K/XP's). Got File- and printersharing loaded? Is Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (Advanced properties of TCP/IP, tab WINS)?

The fact that the file format in NTFS does not matter. It's true Win98
will Not read NTFS, however, across a network is different because the
Win98 is talking to the Xp/2K OS not the drive directly. The OS will
take care of the reading and transfer.

As Marina, stated make sure that you have all PC on the same Workgroup
Name and all PC have different PC Names.
