Server service not started

I'm trying to share a drive/folder on my Windows XP (so that it can be seen in network neighborhood in a connected windows 98 machine), but everytime I try to share a drive/folder, it tells me:

An error occurred while trying to share ---.  The Server service is not started.
The shared resource was not created at this time.

where --- is the drive/folder I'm trying to share.

I went into control panel/admin./services and a Server service is not even listed.
Any idea of why it isn't there and more important how to put it there?

Thanks,
Avi

Are you using Windows XP Home or Professional. If you did not install any networking components these services will not show up. Does this XP machine have networking installed on it? Does it have a network card configured?

Do you have file and print services installed?  You may need to run the Network configuration wizard.

I believe it is Professional, but I could be wrong.  I have a network up and running between two computers (the XP and 98).  
I have two NIC cards on the XP machine.  One to the 98, the other to the DSL modem.  Everything is working properly in terms of seeing the 98 shares and the 98 having access to the Internet and being able to ping the XP machine.  
I'll have to check when I get home to see if I have file and print services installed.  I'd like to get this up and running without the possiblity of ruining what I've gotten done so far (since it took me the whole weekend to get ip and running!).  So I'm not sure what network configuration wizard does, but it can't be good. ;)

Figured it out.
Stupidly, the File and Print Sharing service was not added to that NIC card.
