        An alternative to removing the network drivers.

        Go into the Control Panel and double click on Network icon. You should see a screen something like this. If Client for Microsoft Networks is there, double left click on it. Remove the tick from the little box in the top left corner and get the screen looking something like this one. After clicking OK, change the Primary Network Logon. The screen should look like this. Click OK again and it should ask you to reboot.

        Post back if you have problems or questions.

          Windows 98 was never renowned for it security. Pressing the ESC key will take yo to the desktop where you can make the relevant changes.

          Follow what Biggles said to remove the Client for Microsft Networks.

          To answer your question Yes it does seem that tha machine was used on a domain. I'm very surprised the IT dept let it leave like that. If it was me i would have low level formatted the drive and reloaded Windows onto it.

            if you dont need to share files all over the network, you may remove the client for MS Networks so it may not ask anymore the username, ps and domain.

              Go to Control Panel

              Open Network Connections

              Open "Local Area Connection"

              Click "TCP/IP" and specify IP address

              Put IP address for 1 PC >

              IP Address >192.168.0.1
              Subnet mask > 255.255.255.0


              2nd PC

              IP address > 192.168.0.2
              Subnet mask > 255.255.255.0


              Now restart Win98 machine , it probabbly asks you when you make changes,
              After Win98 machine reboots , right click on each drive and share those drives.
              Refresh several times.

              Open MS Dos on WIn98 machine
              Type

              ping 192.168.0.2 ( Address of the other PC )
              If u see ping reply then connection is OK .
              Go to another PC and share all drives on that PC also .

                That is not what was asked.

                The machine is currently set to work on a domain and the OP wishes to remove this not setup a network.
