Did you not take networking during your classtime?? If so, all you need is in your notes..

no we did not

the teacher does not know squat when it comes to computers. The school offered her the job because she was a student teacher there 2 months before. Our site admin and networking teacher moved to another school and she got the job so she tries to stay a cuple days ahead.

We figured out the problem since we are using the school wiring cat5 cables, and obviously their network, we had to log into my friends computer with our school ids and pass, all tehy and i have to do is make a shared folder and thru all the schools ppls ids(theirs a list of all ppl associated with thge network) and allow access based on ids

is therer any way of doing all these tedius steps or is this the way to go??

we got it working now but .... its just tedious

Is this a workgroup or a domain? It sounds like a workgroup to me. If this is a workgroup, then you would need to have the same account for each user on each computer you want to log onto. For example if you wanted to be able to view all the files on every computer in lets say a 10 computer workgroup, then you would have to create the same account with the same password on all 10 computers (for each student), then you could sit at any computer and acess anything. All the computers also have to be members of the same workgroup. With a domain all the information is stored in Active Directory on the Server and you would only create 1 account on the server and you could access anything the server gives you permission to access. Hope this helps out. My advice... Upgrade to Windows XP Professional with a Windows 2003 server :tazz:
