In a peer to peer network are the computers dependant upon each other. In other words, if one system craches will the other system be affected?

It depends on the operations you're performing at the time...
If the two machines are working on local applications independantly then there should be no problem if one crashes (same as switching one off).

If you are remotely accessing files (e.g. Word Docs)from the machine and it crashes, then yes it will probably lose you changes and cause the app you are running to warn you of a problem.

If you are running a DCOM application over the network (i.e. client UI on the local machine, Business Objects / DB on the other) from your mahcine as the client and the server machine goes down; then your application will most likely crash.

Hope this is what you were after,

If you're machine is the server and the client machine crashes whilst using components on your machine, your machine should be unnaffected.
