Can anyone help ...

Can you mix Windows XP and Windows 98 in a wireless
network?

I have two newish computers running Windows XP but still
retain two older one's running Windows 98.

I understand that sharing the broadband connection will be
OK but am particularly interested in file sharing across
this "mixed network".

Many thanks.

yep no problem, just make sure workgroups are the same & you active a share
on the win98 machines.
