    Samba. www.samba.org

    You could use
    system settings > server settings > samba
    If it's not there then go into add/remove applications and install it (it's under windows file server)

    From there you can add shares (directories). Use user level security and make sure to add the user in that little config thing that Fedora provides. If on the 98 machine it says you don't have permission or something check your firewall settings.

    If everything went well then it should show up in network neighborhood on the 98 machine.

    Once you get good at that look into tutorials and configure samba through the smb.conf file (it's in etc/samba)
    You dont need a pocket protector or thick glasses to be a geek.

    You can mount Fat32 read/write in Linux, no problem... Just add the correct entry to your fstab. Probably Linux mounted it already for you.
