I'd like to be able to use Network Neighborhood, to access files on XP, from
my 98se sessions. As well, if I am at home and want to find a scanned image
or other file residing on the XP box, I'd like to be able to access it. In
the past I could ssh to my linux box on my office LAN, then mount a share on
the XP box, and access what I need on it. 

I DID have my printer attached directly to the XP box, and printed
everything through it, to its printer, but since have moved the printer to
my linux box so that I can print at all. 

In any event, I'd like to be able to access the NET, to use Firefox, or IE
from the XP box. What I just do NOT get is that I have two applications that
access the net, to download file updates, or to transfer claims files out to
a clearing house. BOTH of these applications, residing on XP work just fine,
no blocking of their data getting out onto the web. And yet, simple web
browsing FAILS.
