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.
