The network neighborhood icon and file is missing on my win.98 o/s. In another forum someone had the same problem and they were told to go to add/remove programs in control panel-windows setup-scrolldown and clickon network neighdorhood and restart pc.  BUT there is none to click on??  I'm trying to network two pc together and need file.

You should have a 'Network' icon in Control Panel. Double click this and it should bring up a tabbed box.  The first tab is 'configuration'  You will need to add a client, adapter, protocol and service.  If you are using an network card then Win98 should have detected this and there should already be some settings in there (if not double check the card is setup correctly), however if you want to network using a modem or direct cable connection then you will need to go to the add/remove programs and select what ever you intend to use under the 'communications' section of the 'Windows setup' tab.  Only after this is done will you get to see the Network Neighborhood on the desktop.

I already have all of the network configurations set (clients for ms,dail-up adapter,tcp/ip,ipx.spx.file & print services) and they all are connect to card. In ADD/REMOVE programs I have everything under communications checked, but still not network neighborhood

Get TweakUI and from there you can choose which icons are shown on your desktop... It is located on the Win98 CD (Search for TweakUI).  Load that and then from Control Panel you can run it... Then choose to have Network Neighborhood displayed.

You need to install a Client for Microsoft Networks in Control Panel/Network, to get Network Neighborhood icon on desktop.
