How to... Connect Win2000 and Windows 98 for file sharing.

RESOLUTION
Configure the Windows 2000-based computer to communicate with the existing Windows 98 peer workgroup. First, check the configuration of the Windows 98-based computers in Network properties:

1.) Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2.) Double-click Network.

Review the items on the Configuration tab. Note the settings for Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, the network adapter, and TCP/IP protocol.

Note:peer-to-peer workgroup computer typically have NetBEUI for local LAN communication and TCP/IP for Internet connectivity.

Click the Identification tab and note the workgroup listed in middle box. This is the workgroup name that the computers need to have in common.

To change the network settings in Windows 2000:
---------------------------------------------------------
1.) Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2,) Double-Click Network Connections.
3.) Double-click Local Area Connection. On the File menu, click Properties.

The defaults are Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).  

The protocols need to match those on the Windows 98-based clients in the workgroup.

For Windows 98, follow this process if user names do not exist:

1.) Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2.) Double-click Users. Click Next.
3.) In the Add User dialog box, type a user name (preferably one-word names such as JDoe for John Doe), and then click Next. Then, type a password for the user account. Type the password again to verify it. The user name and password need to be identical on the Windows 98-based computer and the Windows 2000 Professional-based computer. Click Next.

NOTE: Passwords are case sensitive in Windows 2000 Professional.

Select any personalized settings for the account, and then click Next. Click Finish.

Create a user account for each of the users that log on to the network from Windows 98-based computer, and one for the user of the Windows 2000-based computer. Then, click Close. Review the user accounts that you created and then close the Local Users and Groups dialog box. Click OK in the Users and Passwords dialog box to close it.

This should help...;-)

The best thing to do in your scenario is use a domain.
1.) Create a domain user account.
2.) Assign permission and security settings to the shared resource.
3.) Let the user logon to domain. Then access the resource.

This way all users are centrally administered....etc.
Note: Refer to your other post for the details, which i had given there...  "join the domain in windows 98"...;-)
