    as for the Windows Vista, i followed up the insurrections and it's all setup right.
    as for the Windows XP i went on the link you gave me and after I "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP" i restart the computer and got an Error message saying "Dublicate name on the Network"- what should i do???

    You have more than one computer with the same computer name. Change one of the computer names.
