You do this by sharing a folder on you win 2k file server computer and setting appropiate permissions
and you access you're share folder via network neighborhood or my network places. you may also may want to map the share folder for you to easily access stuff in it and put stuff back aswell.

you also need some physical set up
your network should be something like this

internet ISP------ modem-------- router-------- file server (win 2k)
-------- your computer
also you neet to give your network a name so all your computers are part of the same network (peer to peer network)

this will give you detail instructions on sharing folders:

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows


The Hiberfil.sys hidden system file is located in the root folder of the drive where the operating system is installed. The Windows Kernel Power Manager reserves this file when you install Microsoft Windows. The size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the computer.
The computer uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the system memory on the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer cannot hibernate.
Hibernation is made unavailable when you set the value of the Hibernate after setting to Never by using the Power Options item in Control Panel. To make hibernation unavailable, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

How to recover sql 2000 sa password


Microsoft SQL Server 2000 is a full-featured relational database management system that offers a variety of administrative tools to ease the burdens of database development, maintenance and administration. It operates in one of two authentication modes: Windows Authentication Mode (the default) or Mixed Mode.

When you install the SQL Server 2000, you can log in the server with Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication if you select mixed mode authentication. If you select Windows Authentication, you cannot assign a sa password during installation. However, you should set the sa password after installation.

It is very easy for one to set sa password in SQL 2000. Just follow the below steps:

* 1. Expand a server group, and then expand a server.
* 2. Expand Security, and then click Logins.
* 3. In the details pane, right-click SA, and then click Properties.
* 4. In the Password box, type the new password.

The type of client connections determines the choice of security mode. If all of the incoming clients support trusted connections, you can use Windows Authentication Mode. If some clients do not support trusted connections, you can select Mixed Mode.

If you forget the sa password, you will need to use MS SQL Server Password Unlocker to reset sa password SQL 2000. MS SQL Server Password Unlocker is easy yet powerful SQL Server password reset software for you to reset SQL password, including reset SA password and other user passwords. It provides you an easy and safe way to reset SQL Server password for Microsoft SQL Server 2000/2005/2008 in a minute. No need for you to reinstall MS SQL Server on your PC. The file in master.mdf format is enough for you to recover sa password SQL 2000.

Steps to reset sql password 2000 for sa as follows:
* 1. Download and install MS SQL Server Password Unlocker.
* 2. Click the application icon to run it.
* 3. Click Open to import your master.mdf file. All the user names of your MS SQL Server will be displayed.
* 4. Select sa account, click Change password button to reset sa password.
* 5. Type a new password, and then click OK to finish your operation.

Note: This method to reset sa password in sql server 2000 is usually applied when you cannot login SQL Server 2000 by Windows Authentication wile you forget system administrator login password.

More information about sa password:

According to Microsoft, System administrator (sa) is a special login provided for backward compatibility. By default, it is assigned to the sysadmin fixed server role and cannot be changed. Although sa is a built-in administrator login, do not use it routinely. Instead, make system administrators members of the sysadmin fixed server role, and have them log on using their own logins. Use sa only when there is no other way to log in to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

What is windows 2000?


Windows 2000 is a line of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, business desktops, laptops, and servers. Windows 2000 was released to manufacturing on 15th December 1999 [3] and launched to retail on 17 February 2000.[4] It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the final release of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation.[5] It was succeeded by Windows XP for desktop systems in October 2001 and Windows Server 2003 for servers in April 2003. Windows Me was released seven months after Windows 2000 and one year before Windows XP, but Windows Me was not intended to be, nor did it serve as the successor to Windows 2000. Windows Me was designed for home use, while Windows 2000 was designed for business.[6]
Four editions of Windows 2000 were released, listed here in increasing ranking: Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server.[7] Additionally, Microsoft sold Windows 2000 Advanced Server Limited Edition and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server Limited Edition, which ran on 64-bit Intel Itanium microprocessors and were released in 2001.[8] While each edition of Windows 2000 was targeted at a different market, they shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console and standard system administration applications.
Support for people with disabilities has been improved over Windows NT 4.0 with a number of new assistive technologies,[9] and Microsoft increased support for different languages[10] and locale information.[11]
All versions of the operating system support the Windows NT file system, NTFS 3.0,[12] the Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage.[13] The Windows 2000 Server family has additional features,[14] including the ability to provide Active Directory services (a hierarchical framework of resources), Distributed File System (a file system that supports sharing of files) and fault-redundant storage volumes. Windows 2000 can be installed through either a manual or unattended installation.[15] Unattended installations rely on the use of answer files to fill in installation information, and can be performed through a bootable CD using Microsoft Systems Management Server, by the System Preparation Tool.[16]
Microsoft marketed Windows 2000 as the most secure Windows version ever at the time;[17] however, it became the target of a number of high-profile virus attacks such as Code Red and Nimda.[18] For ten years after its release, it continued to receive patches for security vulnerabilities nearly every month until reaching the end of its lifecycle on 13 July 2010.

Problem with the Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server Can't detect Hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

Your running a windows 98 server? Do you not mean Windows NT server?
Windows 98 was not made to server as a server, there is no inherit file security permissions in place; just simple file/folder sharing.

If you need a simple file server, I would upgrade your 98 machine to windows 2000 or NT4.

Windows XP Professional works as a much more effective simple file server with much better security features.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
