Newtworking XP with older computer on 98

If this has been posted else where maybe you can point me in the right direction.

Just got a new computer with XP, and i was looking to netowrk my two machines, ... both have netowrk cards :-p

BUT - after following the network wizzard on the XP machine, and using the disk it made up for the other computer, the older comptuer is still not finding the network connection.

The problem seems to be the fact that the 98 machine wont recognise that there is a netowrk card during the set up - yet its there, and after removing its drivers and the like , it re-installed itself - with no fuss... but it won't network.

AAArrrggh !

Please help :)
