The first thing I would not do is use the network wizard provided with XP.
Things to check:
1) Check your Network Properties and see what is listed there
2) Check the Workgroup name assigned to all the PCs, they should be the same
3) Enable file and print sharing on the 98 machine
4) Set some resource(file or folder) to be shared
5) Check your NICs for flashing lights when on
6) Check your IP and Subnet numbers(they should be in the same range)
I have 3 computers in my home network. All have fast ethernet. All three share an internet connection via a router. Two of the computers (including the main computer) are running WinXP, the third computer is running Win98SE. I have two printers (both connected to the computers running WinXP).
I would like to wipe out my existing attempt at setting up the network and begin again (basically, I can't find folders and files correctly nor is the printer sharing correct either).
So: How do I erase the existing network I set up (on all 3 computers) and begin again with a clean slate?
