I am trying to connect my Win 98 notebook to my XP home edition SP1 main PC in order that I can synchronise certain files (possibly with the later use of Laplink or something similar). Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm tackling the problem from first principles (checking workgroup/computer names etc.) and the various "wizards" on both systems have messed things up a touch. How should I go about setting both PCs. Will installing laplink do all this for me? Do I need to use my XP CD to install the software on my W98 laptop that XP is telling me to do? And then what?
