    Just add NETBUI to your network configuration and share the folders on your drives. Password protect them and only give the password out to the poeple you want to have access.

    You can still share files with TCP/IP on a network, you don't need NetBUEI as it will add un-needed traffic to the network and slow down your connection. Instant Messenger also has file sharing abilities.
