Networking 98/XP

1255 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  johnwill
OK: I used to have a fully functional network, but since the HD crashed on the 98machine, I am working with a clean install of 98II

I'm running one machine with XP, one with 98. I have enabled sharing on both machines, so data can be exchanged in both directions.

While on the XP machine I can browse and transfer files to and from the 98 machine.

While on the 98 Machine, I cannot even see the XP machine!!



Now, i can actually see the XP machine from the 98 Machine, but when i try to navigate to it I get the following error:

"Not enough memory is available, quit some programs"

I have 256 MB of ram, and 41 MB is used. How much memory can it take to make a network connection? I never used to have this problem!!!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Don't know if this applies to you or not.
You need an account on the XP machine that matches the name/password you use to log into the W98 machine. Also, you MUST login on the W98 machine, not bypass the login with an ESC or cancel.
