I have had to reinstall XP on my 1.4 gig machine. Now I cannot share files between them. I can share the internet but not the printer or any files. I am using TCP/IP and Netbeui.
Thanks

XP seems to be pretty tricky with such things.
Confirm Netbeui is on the XP (not installed by default and hidden on the cd where most don't know where to look).
Do you see yourself on each computer in the workgroup?
Confirm both computers are in the same workgroup.
You can also try and reset it up on the XP buy going to My Network Places and clicking 'Set up a home or small office network' in the left pane.

Can see each computer, but not both at the same time. Both are in the same workgroup. How can I manually install Netbeui. I think that is the problem?

On the XP cd, go to \WinXP\VALUEADD\MSFT\NET\NETBEUI - you will find a readme file with instructions.

Netbeui is not an available option by default. The readme file on the cd gives instructions on how to add that as an option to install. You then install as normal.

On Windows XP? That would most certainly be odd since Microsoft no longer supports it and doesn't even recommend it be installed. Did you install XP or did it come preinstalled?
