XP can't access win98 computers

    The Win98 computers get into XP just fine.

    XP can connect to Apache on one of the 98's.

    XP can also get ICS from a 98.

    But XP can't access any shared folders Win98. This used to work, then
    one day it stopped.

    It asks for a password, but then act as if the password was invalid and
    ask again.

    I read that the user may have to be the same on all computers, and they
    are. So that's not it.

    When I try to access "folder1" on computer 2, the username in the
    user/pass box is grayed out with "Folder1/Guest". I don't know if the
    Guest part is doing it or what.

    I even tried the Network Setup Wizard in XP and used the file on a
    floppy it gave me to put on a Win98, and still nothing.

    I should also note that after many attempts at entering the password,
    sometimes it allows access.
