Delivered Applications from Win2k to Win9x

Delivered Applications from Win2k to Win9x

I want to deliver applications from a Windows 2000 Server to Windows 9x clients.  It is my understanding that this cannot be done.  Is this true?  Can anyone tell me how to "serve-up" applications in a clean window to Windows 9x clients?

RE: Delivered Applications from Win2k to Win9x

     The programs can be served, but you will have to add network software on top of NT and client software on your workstations. Set node and group permissions. Move the programs into the /Bin directory where the server can execute them and your done. If you just want to share files, use the microsoft shared networking protocal in your standard installation.
