    I have two computers, one is Windows XP Home, and one is Windows 98. The internet works perfectly on both of them, but I really want to transfer some files between the two computers.

    For some reason, the Windows 98 computer is able to pick itself up on the network, but not the XP computer. They both are set to the workgroup MSHOME. The XP computer doesn't pick up anything. On the modem/router combo (deal from my ISP) both computers show up, however the XP computer's domain name is shown as unknown while the 98 shows up as MSHOME.

    I've tried a lot of different things to try to make it work. I uninstalled SP2 on the XP, then I changed the workgroup on both of them from the original workgroup to MSHOME, then I tried the "Set up a small home or office network" thing on the XP machine, using my memory key to setup the file it gave me on the 98 computer. All to no avail. I think the problem is with the XP computer, but how do you think I could fix it?

    Yes, they're both there.
