I used to be able to connect my laptop with my desktop using NetBEUI and a Laplink Cable (after days of struggle to find the right setttings). Now, with a new desktop with my old hard drive, I get to the "looking for shared folders" window and the laptop "cannot find" the host computer. What's wrong? I hope it isn't the printer port configuration, because I don't seem to be able to change it in either the new desktop or the laptop BIOS.
Running Windows 98SE.
Thanks for the help.
