I'm trying to network my two computers at home. The problem is
I can see all the drives and files of one computer on both, but on
one computer I can't see drives or files. I'm using a hub, 2 nic cards, 2 500mhz celeron,
just connecting the two together and trying to share dial-up access. I can use printer and
scanner with both. Just not seeing drives and files of one computer.

First a question:

- Have you checked to see if the network is working?  Try doing a ping from each machine to the other machine.  If that doesn't work, something is fundamentally wrong with the way you setup the network configuration on one or both machines.

A couple of things to check:

- Make sure File/Printer Sharing boxes in the Network setup on BOTH computers are checked. To check this do the following:
  Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel
  Double Click on Network
  Click on the "File and Print Sharing" button.
  Make sure at least the "access to files" box is checked on both computers.
  Click OK a couple of times (you will probably have to reboot)

- Do you have drive or directories shared on both computers?  If not, make sure something is shared.

I have seen situations if you don't have the boxes checked in the File and Print Sharing, then this situtation occurs.  Hope this helps.  -Jason

Is "Enable file sharing" checked in the Network properties on that "missing" machine?

Ademas de checar con ping x.x.x.x a ambas maquinas, de que esten compartidos tus discos duros y archivos, debes de checar que tus nic's esten recibiendo señal de parte de tu hub. Checar configuracionde cableado.

Good information above and logical step is too ping as identified. you also can hit start/find/computer and type the name of the other computer in. Then do a search, if it shows I have found that sometimes I have to make a change in Network Neihborhood to make it bind again and this has cleared the problem up. Dave
