Method 1:

1) Go to Start and click on Network.
2) Network window will show you all computers in existing workgroup. You can then double click on the computer which you wish to access shared folder/printer.

Note: You can click on Workgroup to access other computers in other Workgroup.

Method 2:
1) The other access method is double click on the computers that are shown in Network Map.

Method 3:
If you know the IP address or hostname of the computer with shared folder/printer, type the <%\IP or hostname> in any explorer bar and then hit “Enter” button, you should then be able to access that computer.

Note: This access method is good and useful if the XP computer is not shown in Network window.

file sharing involves making the content of one or more directories available through the network.all windows system have standard devices making it easy to share the content of a directory. however, file sharing may lead to security problems since by definition,it gives other users access to the content of a part of the hard drive.............

So make the effort to come on time because Deadscore from Malaysia will be opening the show!

I wonder what are you trying to refer to? Can you please explain a bit more?
