Cannot connect to W2K server from Win98 on network

I have just loaded up Y2K server on a small, one domain, one workgroup network with W2K server on one side and 98 on the other.  

When I go into windows explorer and try to connect to the W2K server I get the window that I have to log in with a password.  The path to the servers is "resource:  \\computer1\IPC$". When I type in the password that I gave it, it says "The Password is incorrect. Try again."

When I am on the server going to Win98 there is no problem.  It looks like a trust relationship problem.  I have looked at the password authentication area with in the profiles and reset the password.  I have made sure the computer is shared to everyone, through windows explorer.  I know there are some groups that I am missing and am currently doing research on.  I hope this is a common problem.

tinyheine the problem is... you are not passing to the server a username that 2000 recognizes as a user with permissions to access the resource.
Do this..
-Make sure client for microsoft networks is installed on the windows 98.
-Login to the windows 98 computer as Administrator..
-Connect to IPC$... When this rcp connection sends credentials, it will send user=administrator ...enter the password.

That is great!  When you say to connect to IPC$  That is Start\run\  Type in "\\servername\IPC$".  Or is there more?

-Actually, why not simply connect to a shared folder ?
-Like Start->Run-> \\servername\c$

Same thing happens. When I am on the Win98 box and go into explorer and click on the computer, or goto start->run->\\servername\IPC$.  I get the box that shows up with a password prompt. When I enter in the password it says that it is the wrong password.  Try again.  It seems that I need to set up a user on the server to for W2K to recognize me.  I have not setup any users, permissions, nothing.  I just installed the OS and tried to connect.  Any suggestions?

-Did you try with the user administrator as I suggested ? cuz that user already exists..
-You could use active directory users & computer & create a user...

I created a new user with the same name as who I log in as and now it connects.  I see nothing on the server when I connect from win98, however that is another issue and i can figure that out.  Anyway that was the answer thanks for the solution.

I fixed it!  There were some networking issues that I had to understand.  Now that I know how to do it the whole thing is back and running.

Thanks
