We have 7 computers at our business where I want to place some files on one of the newer ones and let the others simply access them. However, the newest computer is running Win7 64-bit pro. Some of the other computers are just Win XP pro 32-bit. If I setup a "Work Network" on the Win 7 computer where the files are located, will I be able to find them on one of the Win XP computers? Hope I am being descriptive enough. Sorry if I'm not.

Thanks, that is very helpful. I was told by a "professional" that it couldn't be done.

I bet that "professional" worked at bestbuy or a electronic store like it. They are not "professionals" they are salesmen when 2 hours of tech training.
