I had peer to peer working perfect in win95. Since I've upgraded to 98 I have not been able to get it to work. I checked all my settings and everything is the same and their are no hardware conflicts.

Mcag - Be sure that:

1) Your Network adapter is correctly installed and is bound to the correct protocols
2) Necessary protocols are installed and set up correctly (NetBIOS, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX if you are using them)
3) File and Print sharing is installed and enabled on all machines
4) You have a folder/drive shared
5) Your primary Network Logon is Client for Microsoft Networks on all machines

Installing Win98 sometimes changes 3-5 and you need to double-check them.
