Getting 98 to Network without a Domain

Hi,
We have a workgroup, but no domain.

98 and Networking are not my stong points, but being the computer programmer and the lack of a network person means I have to fix the day-to-day stuff. I had no problem setting up the NT 4 and Windows 2000 machines, but the 98 one is proving to be a pain. If I put in a non-existant Domain name I get a message "no domain
server was available to validate your password" but I can see the other computers on the network after
I get past the error msg box. How do I sort this out,
d

Look in Network properties (right click Net. Neighborhood and choose properties).  You should be using the Microsoft Client for Networking.  Also, in the identification tab (I think it is) you should not be logging into a domain.  If that check box is checked uncheck it and reboot.  This may take care of your problem.

Hope this helps

98 requires that a domain be an essential component to setup networking.  Your best bet here is to use the 2000 machine as the server and appoint the 98 machine as the client.  98 and 2000 do not want to function at the same level.  You can't make them equal to eachother.  One must be the server and one the client, 98 is your best bet as the client, because of the advanced features of 2000.
