Sharing Problem

I am using win7 home prem and am connected to a microsoft lan. The other computers on the network are using xp and

win98. I can see all the others on the network, can share files with xp machines but I can only open files on the win98 machines if they are set to read only. If I set the files to full access and set a password win7 asks for a password but will never accept the correct password. All my advanced sharing settings seem to be correct including turn off password protected sharing. Any help would be appreciated.
