The Windows 98 computer can browse the shares on the XP computer no problem.  Everything pops up quickly.  However, it takes 15 seconds to browse a share on the 98 computer from the XP.  The 98 was running TCP/IP and NetBeui, and the XP was only using TCP/IP.  I added NetBeui to the XP computer, and it is browsing normally now, but the question is why would this slow down network browsing so significantly?  It appears as though the 98 computer would prefer NetBeui over TCP.
