For starters, you will want to make sure that both machines have "Client for Microsoft Networks", and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" enabled. Then, on the machine that you want to share a folder, right click on the folder that you want to share, and go to properties. There will be a tab at the top that says "Sharing". Click it. Then, you will see a link at bottom that should say something like, "I understand, blah, blah, Just enable file sharing". Click that. Enter a share name for the folder. Accept it. It should be shared. You will want to make sure that both PC's are in the same Workgroup also. Do this by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, go to "Properties", Tab at top called "Computer Name", click it. The window that displays next shows the computer name and workgroup. Do this on both machines and make sure they match. If not, click Change on one of them, and change it to the same as the other. Does not really matter what the name is. Common ones are WORKGROUP and MSHOME. Then, you should be able to see each other. Please post back if any problems.
