Have a small office network of 2 wired pc and a couple of netbooks wirelessly. I have a schedule/calender program I'm trying to get to work between the 2 wired pc's. (Done it in the past with other pc's but now 2 new/different pc's, both running XP.
Can't get my (main PC)C drive (main hard drive) to share with network, I can access a shared doc folder and see the drives across the network from all pc's, but can't get that hand to show up under the C: drive, (my DVD drive is shared)

I was skimming thru some search results and found this which may not apply...

"Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Performance and Maintenance --> Administrative Tools --> Local Security Policy --> Expand Local Policies --> Select User Rights Assignment

Now, check the following:
Access this computer from the network --> Ensure that Administrator, Guest and Everyone is on this list; if not, choose Add User Group and add them. ****"Guest was not, so I added it"****
Deny access to this computer from the network --> Ensure that Everyone and Guest are not on this list. ****guest was, I removed it****
Deny logon locally --> Ensure that Guest is not part of this list. ****guest was I removed it****

Now, under Security Options, check the following:
Accounts: Administrator account status --> Enabled ***not able to****
Accounts: Guest account status --> Enabled ***not able to****
Network Access: Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous users --> Enabled ***not able to****
Network access: Sharing and security model... --> Guest only ok
