Response to: Log into OS X from Win 95

if an user logs into a window9x machine with username 'ABC', then you must create an user named 'ABC' in the accounts preferences of your mac

    I have tried everything I can think of but I can't get this to work. Running Win 98se. Mac running 10.2.8. I can see the Mac in the Network Neighbourhood and I can get an @Enter Network Password@ dialogue box for my machine with \IPC$ after it. None of my passwords work.

      RE: Last message. Just got access to my home directory at last from 98se. Didn't even need to type in a password. Simply logged on to Windows with my SHORT username and the usual Password- i.e. somewhat different to my OSX logon where I use my FULL name. I took your hint about checking the username. When I double clicked my share it just worked. And fast too. I hate windows! All the hours spent on nothing. All those adapters and protocols... Now I'm growing to hate OSX too! Anyway, I can put it behind me now- I hope... Note, I'm typing this from Windows accessing the shared net connection through OSX. That at least worked practically first time... I'm planning to write an idiot's guide to how to do this, as there doesn't seem to be such a guide anywhere on the net! You know- first set up the PC etc. with how to configure TCP/IP settings etc.
