    Have you enabled file sharing?
    are they on the same workgroup?
    are they using same subnet???
    are they using same protocol?
    How are they connected??

    Need more info!

    BTW i got 1 98 and 3 XPs and all see eachother fine, so its some setting that you dont have enabled

    In 98 right click on a drive or folder and go to properties, then sharing and enable it. Win98 PC's will see nothing or show nothing if a folder or drive isn't shared. ;)
