    I am a HUGE novice when it comes to networking, so bear with me... Here's the problem...

    I have a laptop running Win2KPro, and a desktop running WinME. I know that you can have the ME computer 'call' the Win2K computer, and the 2K computer will 'answer' and be able to browse the contents of the ME computer as if it was on the same LAN. My question is: "How can I do this with two winME computers? Can you set up a ME computer to 'ANSWER', rather than "DIAL" other computers? Please help!

    I'm not an expert but I would take a wild
    stab and say it is possible. ( I've only net-
    worked 95 & 98 but I would assume me
    should be workable.)
    To make it easier for you get the same
    nic manufacture. When you have the cards
    and hub there should be some sort of in-
    structions but just a general answer:
    one computer is set up as server and all
    others as clients.
