I have two Win98 computers networked and they share files & printer.
However, after adding an XP machine to the network, I am unable to see
it (cannot map, doesn't show up in network domain) from the 98
machines. My thought on this is that you cannot add an XP machine onto
a 98 network. One idea to resolve this is to run the network wizard on
XP, create a network floppy disk and then run it on the other two 98
machines.

Will this work? I want to minimize the problems here, so I haven't
tried to do this yet.

Thanks in advance!! All comments welcomed.
