    setup a network share. in xp there is a wizard to help you do it in the control panel called network setup wizard.

    just make sure the 2 pc's have the same workgroup name and you are sharing at least one folder.

    You can alternatively connect to each computer by typing it's network address into the Run command box under the start menu.

    For example. my fileserver is set to the network IP

    So after setting this as shared on the fileserver, I connect to it by using the command:


    This brings up every shared folder, document, and printer on the other fileserver.

    i had alil trouble doin this too. make sure you ping each comp from the other. you'll both comps on and need both ip's. to find em....

    start>run-type in "cmd">(alil black box will open) type "ipconfig"
    write down both ip's

    then..... start>run- type in ping_ip address(of the other comp)

    do this for both comps, if you dont get a reply check your router/network settings

    You can connect two computers directly via a crossover cable. I've never had it go particularly mindblowingly fast, though.

    4play, your sig is probably one of the hottest things I've ever seen.
