    I think you still have to create the short cuts though. I may be wrong though.

    You have to map the network drive if you don't see it in my network places, but thats it.

    All you should need to do is right click on the folders you want to share, select sharing and security, then share this folder on the network.

    Also make sure that you installed file and printer sharing.

    don't enable the 1394. All you want is your Local Area Connection.

    install file and printer sharing like jinxy told you to, then share a folder right click - sharing and security - share tis folder on the network.

    Make sure both computers are in same workgroup

    start - right click my computer - properties - computer name and make sure they are both the same for workgroup.

    Do you have any firewalls running?

    Open up norton, go to personal firewall then configure and add you IP range in there.

    heres mine.

    /edit yes I know my firewall is disabled but thats just for networking purposes right now, I am behind a hardware firewall.
