For some reason I cannot share drives under Win2k.  The properties page for the drives don't show a 'sharing' tab.  I know this is something obvious but I can't see a solution.

go into the properties of the NIC and make sure you have file and printer sharing turned on.

Nope.
Tried turning file and printer sharing off and back on but still no sharing tab.

Did you just uncheck the File and Printer Sharing or did you uninstall it and reinstall it? If you didn't do the uninstall/install, you should try that.

Correction.  Tried what mikeleebrla said but didn't reboot.  Rebooted and now have the sharing.
