Default File sharing with win98 and winXP

ok i had a quick look in the forum but i thought it would be easier for me to tell you,

i have a netgear wireless ethernet modem i have my laptop(winXP) on wireless and my desktop pc(win98) on the ethernet cable so i can use the internet at the same time.

i want to be able to get the files from the win98 pc on my laptop to see and use, and the files on my laptop on the desktop, can i do it with what i have?

if so how?
on win 98 i need the bst help please to set up

to set it uo in win 98...

http://www.wellesley.edu/Computing/F...acstaff98.html
Go There. Scroll down a bit and follow the instructions...


In XP...

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/...ilesharing.htm
Go There. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT USE THE WIZARD. DO AS THE SITE SAYS AND CLICK "I understand the risk...." and "Just Enable File Sharing" Neverrr use the wizard...

Then, make sure that the computers are in the same workgroup. This is done in XP by right clicking on My Compter and going to Properties and going to the Computer Name Tab. Click on CHANGE near the bottom and chage the workgroup name..
In 98, In control pannel go to File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks and look around for WORKGROUP....Its been so long since ive been on 98 so im not sure if its there..if you cant find it there, try looking through the tabs in My computer by right clicking on it and going to properties....


After doing all this, it should be easy...To access the shares in XP, go to MY NETWORK PLACES which can be accessed by typing it in to the Address bar in a window...In 98 i cant remember how....but i know that you can type //[the name you used for your workgroup] EX: "//mynetwork"

Good Luck.
