Somehow I found myself administering a small network after 20 years of being a trucker. At the same time I found out that my much better educated colleagues have the ability to destroy computer systems just by looking at them, so I figured I probably need some help.
I look forward to learning from the members of this forum, and hope that I'm able to give something back. I have set up a test network at home with 3 computers running XP, Me and 98SE, which I am led to believe, reading networking forums, is fraught with difficulties. I may be of some use to anyone trying to get 98 to talk to XP as my network runs very well. TIP: bring 98 up to date using Windows update before you do anything else. Networking fails miserably without updates in place, Ask my wife!! She was ready to kill me before I discovered this little fact.
BTW, my profile indicates that I live in Canada, but I'm English, so bear with my spelling. I believe there may be some differences between what I type and what you are used to seeing.
