  1. Win2000-Win98 through cross cable

    I'd like to connect a PC with Win2000 and another with Win98 through a
    crossed network cable.

    I've set one IP address to 192.168.0.1 and the other to 192.168.0.2 with
    subnet 255.255.255.0. I can ping each ethernet from each PC, but I cannot
    ping the other. I'm sure that the cable is fine, it can connect other
    computer with WinXP.

    Can somebody tells me what's missing here?

    Thanks,
    Erwin.

    I guess that Windows should deal with that automatically but you could
    check your routing table. Open a window shell and type 'route print'.
    You should avec a line like this on the computer with IP 192.168.0.1
    192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.1

    You can also check that both network cards are linked, if there is a
    problem with the cable they won't link.
