If they are Windows 98 versions of the applications they probably won't run under XP. Have you considered dual booting Windows 98 and XP, and using XP for the networking.
I know that is not a very elegant solution, but that software is pretty expensive to go buying the latest versions?

I encountered also that network problem between Mac G5 and Windows 98.
The G5 is looking only by the IP address even you are using a PC-Mac LAN. So what I did
is to upgrade my OS of my PC into Windows 2000. You can use also an XP of course.
I hope it will help you on your networking problem these Mac and PC.
