I have upgraded to windows xp and I am unable to see my network connections when I click on my computer and look at the network drives section. I am connected to the network though. Any suggestions?

Network shares will not show up until you either map them manually or they are mapped from a login script. Try the Net use staement in a DOS window.

Actually, you can install Netbeui and they will appear. Although Microsoft doesn't technically support it anymore, it is included on your XP cd at \VALUEADD\MSFT\NET\NETBEUI along with a readme file.

Angel is right. I have 3 machines on a network and installed netbeui and can communicate fine. Just have to follow Angel's advise.

The only problem is after I copied the files from the CD, the readme file tells me to use the install button in network connections but when I open network connections it is blank, I can't see an install button

Try going to Start> Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections then Click on Network Connections.
You should see your LAN connections in there unless the operating system isn't recognizing your Ethernet adapter.
