Your access method is very similar to those with [[Windows XP and 2000 Map a Network Drive|Windows XP or 2000]]. However, some
+
-
different steps are required so your computer can find the [[storage01]] server and
+
-
to set permissions on your '''public_html''' directory if you want to create a web site. Follow
+
-
the steps below:
+
-
# You must log into Windows 98 with a username that exactly matches your [[Pipeline Account|Pipeline username]]. Otherwise, these steps will not work.
+
-
# The server called '''storage01''' is located in a Windows domain called '''Campus'''. Go to '''Start''', '''Settings''', '''Control Panel''', '''Network'''. Select the '''Identification''' tab. Change the name of your Workgroup to '''Campus'''. You will see a message that your computer is updating some information. Reboot your computer when prompted.
+
-
# Using Windows Explorer's menu, '''Tools''', select '''Map Network Drive'''. Enter the path '''\\storage01\username''' where '''username''' is your [[Campus Domain Account|Windows Campus Domain username]]. (This is the same as your [[Pipeline Account|Pipeline username]].) Enter your [[Campus Domain Account|Windows Campus Domain]] password. You should now have a connection to [[storage01]]. You should be able to see [[storage01]] and your directory in Windows Explorer.
+
-
# To recreate a directory for your web pages, make a folder called '''public_html''' You may now copy html files into it.
+
-
 
+
-
'''NOTE''': Your files will not be viewable on the web until you set the permissions on your '''public_html''' file. You cannot do this on Windows 98 due to limitations of Windows 98. The workaround given below will solve the problem.

The following instructions are not needed unless you accidentally deleted your '''public_html''' directory or changed the permissions on your directory. If you want to make a web page and your computer is running Windows 98, there is one more set of instructions. You only need to do the following procedure once, after which you can use your Win 98 computer for accessing your web pages on [[storage01]].

-
# Find a computer running Windows XP or Windows 2000. (E.g., ask to use a friend or colleague's computer, or use one in a computer lab on campus.)
+
-
# Connect to your own directory on '''storage01''' by mapping to it. Do this by following the [[Mapping A Network Drive#Windows 2000 and XP|Windows XP instructions]]. Remember to disable '''Simple File Sharing''' on the Windows XP computer, if it is enabled.
+
-
# Follow the instructions given to [[Web Space On Storage01#Recreate public_html|recreate public_html]].
+
-
* After doing these steps, all web pages and files you put into the public_html directory should be viewable at http://personal.stevens.edu/~username where '''username''' is your username.
