Same here.

We use one WIN2000 and one WIN98.  Only the user of the WIN2000 machine has
Administrator rights (me).  My son logs onto his WIN98 machine with his own
callsign and password (different than the other machine), and things work
fine.  Both machines are part of the same workgroup, of course.
