Incompatibility between W98 & W2000 in switched enviroment

I'm buliding a 'mini-LAN' with a Catalyst 2950-12 and W98, W2000 PCs. There's no router, no servers, no DNS. I just want all PCs to see each other in LAN. Switch has no special config. I don't know why, but W98 can't see W2000 and vice versa. W2000 PCs can see each other. (When I say 'see' I mean ping). Of course, IP addressing is OK.

Does anybody suffered something like this before?

Thanks in advance

I almost forgot. I've tried disabling spanning-tree, disabling igmp snooping, swapping switch ports, adding IPX/SPX protocol in W2000 network card config (although I don't need it). Even I tried with another Catalyst model: 1912. Nothing works.

Problem solved. It was a cabling problem. No assistance needed
