Hi Experts

I have just got 2 Win 2000 pro machines and set them up and got them running on my network which is a novel 3.12 network.

From the w2k machines i can access all other networked machines.  But from the W98 ones i cant get access to the win 2000 machines.

I have read previous posts about setting up users and priviliges and have tried them but they dont work.

The win 2000 machines have a File system of NTFS does this make any difference.
if so will i need to reformat and use FAT32.(will win 2000 pro work on FAT32???)

I tried setting up a user on the w2k machine that matched one of my win98 users. what am i doing wrong its really annoying. with my win98 machines it used to be a quick set up and im off.

Im using a WORKGROUP not a domain as im using a novel server.

Do you need any more info.

In your Win2k computers, make accounts for your Win9x machines, and allow those accounts to access the resources (hard drives and the like) you are going to share.
In your WIn9x computers, configure to
 "Client for Microsoft Network" and type the username AND the password you did an account for in WIN2k.
hope it helps
