I have 2 computers hooked up to the internet in my office. (see attached diagram).  Each computer has a printer and scanner connected to it. I need some "easy - well laid out" step-by-step instructions to be able to share files and printers (and possibly scanners) between the two systems.  Both systems are running XP Pro 2002 SP3.

Thanks

It is really quite simple.  I assume you have windows xp pro, if you have home edition there are workarounds but with windows xp pro, a little network is easier to setup.

Here is a link to give you a general idea.
