File Share. If I can remember, you can right click a folder and choose share/ing, providing you have File / Print Sharing enabled.

Both computers must have a unique name and be members of the same workgroup. Choose some files or folders to share or printer. You will then be able to "See" the win2k computer. You should have a user name / account on the win2k computer that is the same as the user on the computer that you are using to "See" the win2k machine.

The user name is not absolutely necessary, however it will save the step of logging on to the win2k machine each time you want to view something.

There is a program called APPLETALK, though here at work, there is a PC that is connected to the network that has MACs, but I had trouble configuring a printer that is on a MAC to the PC... There could be issues but if you have OS X, then you might have a chance.

If you want it to show up, the share something.

If you want to hide it, even though it is sharing something,
run "net config server /hidden:yes" - no quotes.
