windows 98Se and windows XP network help

I have a simple network involving a PC on XP and a laptop on 98SE
being connected together via a ethernet switch. They can both each
other's adress and get a reply via the command prompt, but neither can
see the other in network neighbourhood. Any ideas??

Thanks

 Edward

don't know but i know some time you can access other pc via its ip and
some time you can not but when you can access other pc via its ip then
suttenly you can see them in network neighbourhood, i have this
problme lots of time but i found only one solution, install netbios on
both pc it will work again why i don't know (i know they communication
i m mcp, mcse, mcdba, a+, ccna) but i can not understand this problem
even i several time i mail all detail but i didn't get any reply from
