Make an accurate note of the name of each computer (Control Panel, System, Computer Name). Go into My Computer on each machine and enable file sharing on relevant folders. Run the networking wizard which will create TCP/IP (if it's are not already set up). In Networking, turn off the firewall in each computer. You then need to create a new Network Place (generally I run the Networking Wizard but your setup may be different). Two things: Windows Help is some help if you get stuck. The add new Network Place routine can be slow and truculent -- if you are patient it should work eventually. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
