    Hey All-

    I have a home network setup, 1 XP Pro, 1 XP Pro & 98 SE dual boot and my laptop with 2000 Pro. I have a wireless MS base station, and PCMCIA card for the laptop and the 2nd hooked up hard to the base. I have no trouble with any of the connections except the XP dual boot will not show other PC folders. I can view its contents from others, but cant view others from it. It just hangs on the screen when I click on the folder etc.... I am trying to view. One thing, every time I boot up the dual boot in XP pro, it keeps giving me the install screen for the MS base station, saying you are now ready to configure your nic to work with the MS base station??? Even though its already configured...

    Regards
