I have windows 2000 on my desktop computer, connected to my laptop with a peer to peer network.  I can access my laptop files from my desktop, but when I try to access my desktop from my laptop, the desktop name comes up, but when I click on it, it asks for a password - How can I find the password?

Try these:
1. Make sure both machine belong to the same workgroup (network property)
2. On W2k desktop, create a user account with the same login name you use for your laptop and with the same password.

I think that you laptop use Windows 95 or 98.

So go on your W2k machine (If you are a administartor) to start => Settings => Control Panel => Users and Password => advanced => Advenced => Users => Right click to create a new user.
There you must create the user and password for the laptop user. Like Huben have say.

OK, that did not work, but I did change the properties of Guest to enable the account.  Now on the laptop, when I click on the network neighborhood and the desktop computer, I get the window with no icons in it.  The Drives are all checked shared on the desktop.  Why won't the folders show up?

Check the sharing and the properties from the sharing. You can set permissions on the sharing level and on the NTFS level. Check this out...

Ok, that led me to find out that I needed to set up a new name after allowing guest and then giving that new drive name permissions.  Works good now.
