I would like to network my 2 computers. I have a D-Link
router hooked up already so I have an Internet connection
on both but I would also like to share a printer and
files. I am running Windows XP on one, and the other is a
Mac and it has Mac OS X. I do not have a clue as to where
to start. Can someone please help?
My email is krussell070@hotmail.com
Thank you, Kevin

On the winxp box:

Rt click Network places
click properties
RT click the appropriate network connection (NIC)
click properties
click the install button
select "appletalk" protocol
ensure that you have the following components installed:
client for microsoft networks
file and printer sharing for microsoft networks
internet protocol (tcp/ip)
and the newly added appletalk protocol
ensure that each of these are chcked.

One the MAC side I am virtually clueless, I believe that OS X comunicates via TCP/IP, which means you may need nothing more to network the 2. You may not even need Appletalk. If you don't get a workable solution in this area, go to the MAC area...

Thanks for the answer. Appletalk protocol is not installed, when I go to install, appletal protocol is not there as an option. Do I have to get it off win xp disk or maybe OS X disk.
