Hi,

I did not find any utility that will automatically configure your peer-to-peer network.

Have you tried using the Network Connection Wizard in Win2k?

Hi,

Are you login into both system using the same username/password?

You have to create the same account on both systems and make sure you log into the Win98 system, do not hit <ESC> to bypass the login prompt during bootup.
