A kind person (anil_u)helped me network a WinXP suystem and a Windows ME system.Thanks

My cousin in Toronto also has 2 systems but they are both running Windows XP Pro. They are both connected into a 4 port router and she has DSL internet. The internet is running fine on both systems BUT she does not know how to set the 2 up so they both talk to each other. She wants to be able to send files back and forth. If anyone could put together a tutorial, i would really appreciate it and will pass it on.

First she needs to run the network setup wizard on each system, selecting the option for the residential gateway.  After the network setup wizard is done, she can select folders to share  by right clicking on the folder and clicking on 'Sharing and Security'.  In the folder's properties dialog, she needs to click the radio button next to share this folder and make sure that the name of the share is what she wants.  Click ok and when the network refreshes the other computer will be able to see this share.  She can repeat these steps for any folder on both systems that she wishes to share.  Then when she clicks on 'My Network Places', all shared folder for both systems will appear.  If they don't they can easily be added by clicking on 'Add A Network Place'  in Network Tasks.
