    I have networked two winXP machines and am sharing files.

    How do I set them up so that I can log on to either machine and my profile will be loaded?

    I apologize for not knowing this one, as I use Novell for Roaming Profiles at work and have never attempted it with Microsoft Netoworking, try going to Start - Help and Support and search for info on Roaming Profiles, there MIGHT be enough info in there to get you started. Basically, it's going to take a central location to store the profile that both machines can get at, I just have no clue how to set it up with the Microsoft Client. regards

    I don't think that is possible in a Peer to Peer network.

    Thanks for your contributions, I have been told by a techie friend that it only works on domains and not peer to peer.
