    Hello:

    I couple days ago i installed a new 75gig HDD in one of my networked PC's.
    This PC is a Gateway PC and the new HDD came pre-Installed with Windows ME.
    OK..I Installed all my drivers and things and when i Right clicked a folder to share it across the network.."Sharing" is not there???
    I have all the needed protocols and services installed just as it is on all my PC's..workgroup is the same...computer name is different.
    Note..Im running a Linksys 4-port router...when i installed the Network card drivers it instantly came online...when i checked the TCP/IP properties all it said was TCP/IP...it did not show my card name after that...for example my network card is a Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter...it should have read this way TCP/IP->Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter..Right???
    but instead all it said was TCP/IP.
    never the less it was online....i just can not figure out why the sharing menu is not showing up when u right click the appropriate folder???
    heres my specs:

    P4 1300mhz
    128mbs ram
    Winme
    Linksys 4-port router
    Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter

    I appreciate any help!!

    TIA
