Can anyone help me out?
I need to connect 2 computers, one with 2K and one with XP, in my office so all files in each can be accessed from either computer through a network.
I have a router and cables, what I need to know is how do I setup the Microsoft networking to get each computer to do what I need them to do?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Have a Great Day,
Jraquel

I am assuming both systems have properly installed nic cards.
Both computers must be members of the same workgroup and have unique names. You must then select some files or folders to share.

If you want to be able to "See" a computer without the annoying box popping up to log on, you must create an account on the computer with the same name as the one you are trying to log on from.
