The title says it all really.

The MS help file says that it's done throuh the "macfile" command (see also http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/proddocs/macfile.asp) and that this is part of "Services for Macintosh" which is installed via "Other Network File and Print Services", but this is not an option there.

Help!!

Services for Macintosh I believe can only be installed on Microsoft server operating systems. Macfile on XP can only administer things on a remote server.

There is software called MacLAN that would allow you to share files etc though. You can research it at http://www.miramar.com/.

I had the same issue and the resolution I decided to use was to enable FTP on the XP computer.
