For the record, XP does work with DAV, but you have to work around 
a MS "enhancement."  If you use authentication, Win98 will prompt 
you for a username and password.  WinXP will not.  You must 
specify a fully qualified URL:  username:password at domain:80. 
Incredibly, you must even specify port 80!
