I set up a small network and made a network wizard disc for 2k but it says
that the netwiz dose not support 2k?
Help please anyone

You might want to post this in the networking forum.

1. Create identical user accounts/passwords on both machines.
2. Make shares and make sure permissions are set to Everybody.
3. Configure firewalls to allow the lan as trusted.

On the WinXP PC, create local user account(s), with password(s),
that have the desired access privileges to the desired shares. Log on
to the other PCs using those account(s), and you will be able to
access the designated shares, provided your network is configured
properly. Also, make sure that WinXP's built-in firewall
is either disabled or set to allow exceptions for file and print sharing.

On the Win2K PC, create local user account(s), with password(s),
that have the desired access privileges to the desired shares. Log on
to the other PCs using those account(s), and you will be able to
access the designated shares, provided your network is configured
properly.

Usually, WinXP's Networking Wizard makes it simple and painless --
almost entirely automatic, in fact. There's a lot of useful,
easy-to-follow information in WinXP's Help & Support files, and here:
