Hi.  This is my first question at the experts exchange.  

At my place of work, we have a total of 5 computers.  4 computers and 1 used for a server.  3 of the 4 computers have windows 2000 os and the server has win 2000 server os.  The 4th computer has windows 98 os and hardware wise(cables), is connected properly with the other computers and server.  

My question is what steps do I need to take, and what info do I need to look for, inorder to connect the 4th computer(windows 98 os) to the network so I can see files from any computer...even the server?  

I have looked through this forum on several related topics, but haven't figured it out yet.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry about the mix up and the address Netminder.  Thanks for letting me know.  And thank you wtrmk74 for the link.  Being a newbie to networking, it will probably take me a while, but this solution looks like it should help me out.
