Unable to see resources when running XP Home

I have a Windows NT server running RRAS. I can dial up the server on a Windows 98 PC and see the resources, but when I try to dial up the server running XP Home, the server accepts my user ID and password but I do not see any of the server resources. Any thoughts?

XP Home is not a real good networking platform, I would recommend upgrading to XP Pro. You may need to assign your local user account a password on the XP Home system. On XP, no password means no network access. Connecting from XP to NT may be problematic in and of itself due to authentication protocol differences - make sure XP is supporting NetBIOS over the dial-up link and is using an authentication protocol (like CHAP or MS-CHAP) that NT supports.
