Networking Windows 98SE/ME and XP

Have a wireless LAN setup with mostly XP O/S's but now I have to network a 98SE and 2 Windows ME clients in. The SE and ME computers can see and access all the XP C:\ drives,but the SE and ME computers won't speak to each other!
I'm getting a variety of error messages such as,"No domain server available to validate your password", and," The domain conroller for this domain domain cannot be found", and" There are no logon servers avilable to service the logon request"...
I have done away with all the windows logon passwords on all the systems and file and printer sharing in enabled on all. Also all computers are using TCP/IP protocols.
So in other words the Win98 and Millenium Editions can interact and see all the files on the XP machines but they cannot be accessed by each other or the XP clients!
On top of that, when you try and access the older windows operating systems from an XP terminal or each other, it wants password authentication even though I have never put in a networking password and "Windows Logon" is set for "NO PASSWORDS!"
