hey guys i hope it hasnt been asked before i had a quick look but couldnt find it.

I've been asked by a friend to set up a small network between a couple of computers. he wants all of the files to be saved on a common folder...On the uni computers they have a drive that appears on the mycomputer screen as like a h: and i was wondering how you make a network resourse come up without going into mynetwork places.

Mapping and file sharing.

Make a folder, dump all the common stuff in it. Right-click on it -> "Sharing and Security" -> Share this folder on the network -> Give it a name -> Allow to change the files. OK.

On the other computer(s), right-click My Computer -> Map Network Drive -> Browse to this new folder on the computer with the common folder, tell it to remap at logon and pick a drive letter. Job done. Remember to fire up the PC with the common folder first otherwise Drive H or whatever won't map automatically.
