Yes, Print and Sharing have to be enabled on both systems, I would share them something like LAPTOP_C, DESKTOP_C,

enable Print and File Sharing, reboot, enable the shares you want, and get to work

the printer software may need to be installed on both also (unless it is native to the Win98se software)

you need to enable file/drive sharing in order for you to see them. for C drive, goto my computer, right click and choose 'sharing', it will then prompt you for share name and etc. Do the same for your printers also, goto start > printers, select the desired printer and right click (steps same as above)

you should be able to see the shared out drive/printer now
