Default Please Help !!!!

I recently bought a new laptop computer (HP pavillion) that runs windows xp. I set up a wireless network in my home with my other computer that runs windows 98. I tried to network these together, but can not figure it out. Please help.

Eh.. well, the reason this won't work is the simple idea of DOS. You see, 98 is built using DOS whereas XP only has a commandline emulation of DOS, it is not the core of the OS at all. So when 98 requests a core command for a sharing operation, XP cannot achieve that. Actually, WIndows 2000 NT would come in handy here, as it is still the BEST Windows distro for networking wired and wirelessly.
