I tried searching for help for this but didn't see anything. I was previously running SQL Server 2000 Standard on NT 4.0 and wiped my server clean and loaded Windows 2000 Server and SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition. After doing this, my Win98 users running the Personal Edition can't register the new server in Enterprise Manager, while my Win2000 Pro users can. I'm getting SQLState 01000 with SQL Server error 10061 followed by SQLState 08001 with SQL Server error 17. I've tried setting up an ODBC connection but receive similar errors. Any thoughts?

It could be that the TCP/IP network library wasn't installed when you installed SQL Server, and/or it's defaulting to named pipes only (which don't work with Win98 clients).

Make sure that the client machines are specifying TCP/IP when trying to connect to the SQL Server.

I've already checked. I've got named pipes and TCP/IP both configured on the server, and I'm definitely using TCP/IP on the client side. I've disabled named pipes on the server, but I can't stop and start my service until tonight, so I'll have to wait until then to see if that works.
