I installed Win2000 over Win98 on the computer I use to store files. I tried to access the drives from another computer and was informed the sharing had changed, WIN2000 said it would do so during the install. So, I right click the drive and select sharing and nothing happens, no dialog box, no message, nothing. I select properties, same thing. Other selections work. I try help and do the various things it says to do, right click network, and still no sharing or properties. I am logged on as myself and then as administrator and still no good. HELP!!!!!:confused:

So if I'm understanding correctly, you do have the option when you right click to select sharing? I'm not as boned up on 2k as I am in XP, but you could try Help and type in sharing.

Sharing is on the drop down menu but nothing happens when I select it and it is not "greyed out" it appears to be active, same with properties.

First off, do you have file sharing loaded in your network configuration?

Yes, I do. I reloaded Win2000 and now everything works. Thanks to all.
