I have two PCs hooked up to a router.  Each one is listed in Network Neighborhood.  I can view the drives and printers on one computer (from both computers) but not view the drives and printers on the other (from either computer).  How do I "add" my drives to the list when "exploring" via Network Neighborhood or Windows Explorer.

On the computer that can't be seen, right-click any folder and choose to share it, and make sure both computers are in the same workgroup. At least one folder must be shared in order for that PC to show up in NN..
