I found that one way that works is to enable Guest acct, make sure that ICF
is not enabled, and then to use the Network Setup Wizard once, being sure to
make the workgroup the same as the win98 not MSHOME as is the default, but
near the end when it asks you to create a setup disk, don't select this,
just select the button that is to End the Wizard.
Now is seems you can use the Sharing and Security tab of the Properties of
any folder, if you are logged as admin, or your own if your are a user. You
would enable the radio button that allows network access, in either the read
mode or the read and edit mode, using the appropriate radio buttons below
the network button.
After this, I found that I could turn off the Guest account and still access
all shares from the XP and to the XP machine.
I have two accounts on the XP machine, admin with password, and myself as a
user with no password. and there seems to be no limitation to access of
shares as long as they don't require admin rights exclusively.
