In my new computer (XP operating system) that is on a wireless network, I
would like to enable file sharing. When I go through the wizard it asks me
to create a disk to take to other computers. Unfortunately, when I purchased
this computer, I did not get a floppy drive! Any ideas on how I can create
this file another way?

Thanks,

Bob

A zip drive, or a memory stick in the USB ports, or even a burned CD.
Easiest is to put in a floppy, you can get them for around $25

Hi,

Just right click the folders you wish to share on the network and choose
properties. Go to the sharing tab to enable it. Note that pc's on your local
network should all use a common workgroup name.
