Are you positive you have the same name for the workgroup on both computers, and the same spelling? If so, be sure to reboot the Win98 machine then try again.

Right click on the folder and select "Sharing". Verify that 'Everyone' (its just you using the computers right??) has access. Otherwise, set up specific users for access.
