    NTFS shouldn't be an issues, the XP OS is what is accessing the hard drive.
    To access the XP from 98, make sure you have a user configured on the XP system with the exact same username and password as on the 98 system.

    Here's a link that details what needs to be done: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-108
    (Look under "I can't access other computers from My Network Places/Network Neighborhood")

        Hi winxandlinx.
        Did you read the link posted?

        IF you have the user setup correctly, meaning they're identical on both 98 and xp, then you should check the permissions on the share you're trying to connect to.

        Check out this link... it uses lots of graphics http://www.windowsnetworking.com/art.../wxpwin9x.html
