Did you use the XP Networking wizard in My Network Places?
My home machines are XP with DHCP enabled. No prob with my machine connecting.
Tried to put my neighbors win 98 machine on and no go.It does not see a windows network at all. It is set to obtain an IP automatically. Set as part of my workgroup. All the other tabs such as default gateway, wins ect is left blank. Is it diff for 98? do i need to do a gateway? Any help would be great.
