I have a network with three machines, XP home, win 98 and win ME.  If all three machines are booted -- all three can talk to each other.  However,  for the xp home and win ME system to talk -- the win 98 system must be in the network -- initially.  After the connections are made -- the win 98 system can be removed. Any ideas where to start?

Are you running Internet Connection Sharing from the Windows 98 box?

Or any other service on it for that matter like Winroute that is providing IP addresses to the other machines etc.

suspect a master browser issue

1 - On the master computer, set KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\MaintainServerList

to "YES". Set this key to "NO" on the other computers. Note that any computer using

the default setting "AUTO", which is later connected to the network will not be able

to browse until the key has been set to "NO" on that machine.
