Is there a way to be able to manage network shares in Windows 2000 Professional?  With NT4 I used File Manager to manage shares, but it doesn't work for Windows 2000 Server shares.

Thanks.

Sorry, JKR.  I edited my question to say "manage" network shares instead of "see" network shares.  Net View will let you see them but not manage them.  Thanks.

Right click on My Computer, Choose Manage, Then choose to connect to other computer, select the other box and then you can manage the shares.

Geoffryn:  Thanks for that tip!  That's great to change shares, etc., but I want to share folders that aren't already shared and I can't see them in the Manage Screen.  How can I do that?

You should be able to right click on the Shares in the MMC and choose to create a new share.  It will then let you browse the admin shares in that machine and create a new share.  Obviously this only works with NT/2000
