neither of the win98se machines can access win2000 machines

Hey, I have a network of 5 computers set up (using coax) all using tcp/ip protocol. It worked fine until recently I upgraded 2 computers to windows 2000 and the left the other three windows 98. Windows 2000 can see and access the win98 computers, while the win98 computers can only see the win2000 computers but not access them, why? Sharing is set up properly, both win2000 computers are set to always assume administrator has logged on (hence there is no password needed to log on to win2000) When win98 trys to access a win2000 computer it asks for a password but as I mentioned earlier known is needed (so I don't know what to put in) Please help!!!!!!!

PS all computers are using fat32!

Check to see if you have the Win 2000 computers setup for share level access vice user level access. Larry

Thanks for the reply! After months of frustration I finally found that if I log on the win98 computers as administrator (user name) they can access the win2000 computers fine (don't know why I didn't think of that sooner)!! Thanks again though!!!
