Win XP and Win98 computers can't see each other over LAN

I recently set up a new computer running Windows XP Home and tried to network it with my older Windows 98 SE computer.

The Windows 98 machine can access the shared files on the Windows XP machine, but I can't browse to the Windows 98 computer from Windows XP.

Also, when I try to play a game between the two computers, they can't see each other.  The game is using IPX/SPX, so I'm guessing it's a problem with that protocol.

Has anyone run into this before and knows a solution?
