I have a small business server set up at a clients site. There are 5 XP home machines, which i will be upgrading shortly to XP Pro so i can get them on the domain. They also have a Windows ME machine, and one 98 machine. These will be off the network soon. Right now everything is on a workgroup, except the SBS, which is running AD and on the domain.

I have created a share on the SBS for user files. I can get to this share fine on the XP home machines, but not on the ME or 98 machines. When i type in \\servername\sharename, i get a box that comes up saying please enter network password.

Ex: share name on SBS is "icm"

type in "\\servername\icm"

The dialog box comes up labeled "Enter Network Password". Inside it it says "You must supply a password to make this connection".

Resource: "\\servername\IPC$"
Password:

I dont believe this is any password that corresponds to the server. Is this password something to do with that of the local machine?

a few ideas...

On the problematic clients can you map a drive this way:

net use \\servername\IPC$ /U:domain\username password     ??

You can also try to enable the GUEST account....on the SBS server...
