    If you have a firewall on your computer make sure your network is set to trusted which will allow sharing, if you have Sygate there is an option for allowing other users to share your files. I can't remember where it is as I use Zone Alarm it was only a friend who had that trouble.

    Do you want to share only specific files or the whole drive? If you want to share the whole drive, go to MY COMPUTER, right click on the drive you want to share and click on sharing. This isn't always a good idea on a large network, but for a home network where only you or your family have access to the computers, it is fine. If you have a firewall, it needs to be configured as well. Charlie
