I would be very grateful if anybody could give me at step by step instruction how to create a small network (no domain, just workgroup) between two computers (A and B) using the above operating systems. I've been going trough hell each time I have to do a reinstall or some other major operation on either of the computers. The computer A is the one connected to the internet works like the "server" and is on win2k pro, the computer B is on winxp home edition. Both computers can ping each other but no one sees the other in network places. I've checked that both are on the same workgroup and both computers have shared folders. Would be very gratefule if anyone could guide me through.
