You need to have:
1. file and print sharing must be installed (under network settings)
2. share a folder (right click, sharing) as abc or some other share name
3. assign IP addresses to both 1394 ports (under network settings, TCP/IP protocol).  Use network addrsses in the same network like 192.168.1.1 with a mask of 255.255.255.0 for machine A and 192.168.1.2 with a mask of 255.255.255.0 for machine B
4. you should be able to open a command prompt and issue a ping command to locate the other machine (ping 192.168.1.2).  You should see a response time in milliseconds.

5. if you get this far you have network connectivity, else something is wrong
6. now do a START\RUN and type in \\192.168.1.2\abc.  This should bring up an explorer window.

I am assuming Windows XP as the OS.  You can reach network settings through Control panel or START/settings/network settings.  This may be slightly different on your machine depending on how your machine is configured.

Found out why it was asking for password.............
It's because the laptop wasn't sharing any files
Thanks

I think before you type in the name of the machine you have to leave the connection active for a while so they can get to know each other cos now it works
