98 Sharing with 2000

I have 2, 2000 machines and one 98.  I want all 3 machines to be able to share files no matter who is logged on.  However when I try to log on to the 98 machine I get an IPC$ prompt .  I fixed this a while ago, it was somehting about a guest account I think but its been so long since I set up a simple workgroup, can anyone telll me the workaround ?

THanks

With 2000 systems, I would create accounts that match the ones users might log on to the 98 machines with.  So if you have Joe, Mike, Steve, and Mary, on each 2000 machine, create those accounts with matching passwords to the 98 machine.  Then you shouldn't have a problem.

I wanted to do it with no accounts. so they could just log in no matter what username was typed in

Security measure that exists in the more recent versions of Windows.

Look at the registry setting near the bottom. You can take that key out... just make sure you're aware of the potential effects of your choice to do that even though it makes things easier.
