Connecting to a sharename that contains a space

I am trying to connect from a pc running windows 98se to a sharename that contains a space on a windows 95 pc.  I can see the pc when browsing the network but cannot access the share.  The windows 98se pc is configured to use dhcp.  Can anybody help?  Thanks.

A) Try connecting to it by using quotes:  "\\workstation\my share" or \\workstation\"my share"
B) find the short name equivalent (typically first 6 characters, a tilde (~) and a number (1) :  \\workstation\myshar~1

or put the IP of the computer with the share on it, eg \\192.168.0.5

Hey.

Also try using an underscore _ where the Space is.

I believe my post to be the solution.
Nothing against the other comments, but replacing the server name with the IP address does not correct the space in the share name - nor does replacing the space with a different character.
Ultimately, would prefer to hear back from jzeker though...
