    no drives? can you explain. why should you be seing drives within network neighborhood?
    the comps need to be configured. do you have details on what you have done so far?

    I agree with drew, please provide some more details. What i understand so far (im not sure, cause there is no detail in your question), is that when you want to connect to the other computer, you have not defined which folder you want to share. Also in the win2000 settings, there is an option about remote access to "drives". What do you mean with drives?? The cdrom, the floppy, etc...???

    Just to test if your computer is setup correctly, create a folder somewhere, and right click on it. Then click on "sharing". Then try to connect to it from another computer. If im totally wrong with all this, then please re-define your question and give us more detail.

    Cheers.

    hi

    thanq for giving reply. last time the drives r displayed. i did not have access to the win98 system. is there any loophole for getting the information.

    they system is displyed in network neighborhood. when clicking on it we r entering in and the page is empty. drives(C:, D r not displaying. i think they have removed the drives from sharing. can i access that drives. is there any loophole.

    thanx in advance.

    Uhmmm, you can only access the drives if they are being shared. Anything else would be "illegal", and i cant/will not help you in that situation. Sorry if i maybe have misunderstood you about this point. If you are wanting to access it legaly, then share the drives. Otherwise i dont know. Further more, who are "they" when you say that "they have removed the drives"?

    you have not included any detail in your post. we cannot read your mind. is this your network? if so then it is very easy to configure. to "see" a drive it must be shared. it seems the network works fine. what information did you need from us?

    How about just using the search feature to find the box.
    START>SEARCH>FILES AND FOLDERS Select Computers and People then Computers on a Network, then search for the NETBIOS name of the computer.

    You may want to check and see if you are in the same workgroup. Just right click on My Computer then hit properties. You'll be able to see which workgroup you are in at that point. Be sure it matches the settings on the W98 box.

    Hope this helps.

    what kid of network are you on?

    are you logging in?
    check your login scripts.
    are you just a client?
    your admin probably locked that down (if their any good)
