Having two 0perating systems on the same drive and dual booting is like having a choice of two PCs to boot to. You should be able to setup each operating system to network. Once booted to one of the OS's it really doesn't "know" the other one exists. Larry

If u have setup the network correctly then right click on the network neighbourhood icon on the desktop, and go to properties.
You should see a local area network icon there.
Right click on that icon and install the components and protocol and set the ip as u would in 98.

Then right click on the My Computer icon on the desktop and go to the Identification Tab and click properties and then join it to the workgroup by typing in the name of the work group.

To check your LAN config
right click "My Network Places" then select Properties.
You should now be at the Network and Dial-up Connections folder. right click again on Local Area Connection. and Click Properties from her you can configure your tcp/ip stack and install netbeui and client for ms networks etc.
Has a cool feature to place the lan icon in your tray like the old 9x dial up networking, shows connection speed etc...
