I have 2 computers one on win98(fat32) other on winxp(ntfs)they are sharing a (dsl) internet connection Through a dlink router (tcp/ip).  I Want to setup a peer to peer network for file sharing.  I understand i need to have tcp/ip,client for microsoft networks and file and print sharing for microsoft networks enabled on both systems in order to setup a peer to peer workgroup for file sharing is there anything i have to enable or watch for in windows 98 machine do  i have to log in with a username/password to access the network or does that matter? also since i am using a router that the computers are connected to does the router have its own ip adress do i need to worry about that? also do i need static ip adresses or can i just use the netbios names to connect to the other computer (eg:\\computer1\c$)...i hope I am making myself clear i Just basicly want to know what to do inorder to get file sharing working between theese two systems anything i have to watch for..if you can answer or know of any helpfull web pages it would be very much appreciated i thank you very much for your time.
