Unclebuck is correct - you might not have the resources available to resolve this, but here is how you would do it...

1)  Set up a server to autheticate ID's and create a domain.
2)  Join both the W2k and 98 workstation to the domain.
3)  When the users log in, log in to the domain.
4)  Make sure the 98 workstation is both a member of the domain AND is set up to use "User Level access" and not "Share Level Access".  The default is "Share Level Access" and this will continue to prompt for a non-existant share password.

As long as you have a server to authenticate the users and the workstations are members of a domain, AND the win98 system uses "user level access", then your users will get authenticated and given access, as needed.

stafi, no good.  The 98se client is user level access and there is an account set up with same name on the win2k server but still does't work=prompts for password then will not accept password

Are you running WINS on your 2k server?  Windows 98 machines will need WINS in order to see the netbios names on the network and find the shares by name.  Can you ping the server by IP address from the 98 machine?  What's the IP scheme that you are running?  Are you getting DHCP from the 2k server?

If your machines are on the same subnet and you are able to ping by address you should only need to set up a LMhosts file on the Win98 machine so that it knows how to access shares on the 2k box, or you can enable WINS on the 2k server and add the Wins server IP address to your TCP/IP settings on the Win98 machine.  If you are running DHCP on the network, add the WINS server and Node types to your DHCP Scope and obtain a new lease on your Windows98 machine.  It should now be able to talk to the 2k server and see its shares.

Chris, you really know networking.

no wins, we are using dhcp and wins said it did not like it

yes, I can ping 2k server from 98se machine

ip scheme=tcpip/dhcp from router
DHCP from the 2k server?=no

all machines on subnet=255.255.255.0

Is it possible to use dhcp and LMhosts???

...running DHCP on the network, add the WINS server and Node types to your DHCP Scope and obtain a new lease on your Windows98 machine.

Is it possible to use wins and dhcp???

Bottom line Chris, I am using dhcp, how should I setup the 2k server and or 98se box

Thanks, Doug
