Default Need help with Network Neighborhood

Hey guys,

A few weeks ago, I was able to share files between my 2 computers. One is running Win XP and the other Win 98. I reformatted Win 98 last week and now, when I go to Network Neighborhood, it won't let me see the Win XP computer. If I try to get files from Win XP to Win 98, I have no problems. What could I be doing wrong?

Also, Win 98 asks me for a password at the start... I just don't put anything and click ok and it works. How can I get rid of that?

Thanx a bunch
