Using a Win2000 & Win98 machine on a direct coax connection, when accessing the Win2000 machine via the Win98 I receive a notice saying that resource requires a password for access.  This is a fresh install of Win2000 and a password has never been setup, anywhere.  By default the Win98 machine is searching for the "bobsdesk\IPC$" directory.  Of course bobsdesk is the name of the Win2000 machine, but not sure about the IPC$ directroy or why it's only trying to access that directory.  Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

The IPC$ is a RPC named pipe.  It is needed to establish the file sharing connection.  Win 2000 will not allow you to logon without security.  You will either need to create a local account on the 2000 box with the same name and password as on the Win 98 box, or you need to enable the guest account.

When win2000 is setup there is an administrator account installed and it asks for a password to be created.

as geoffryn says, add a user to the Win2k, setup Win98 to login to WinNT domain and use the same user, password and domain on Win98 as the one created on Win2k
