Under which Tab under Folder Options is "Use Simple File Sharing". I don't see it. Every computer is in the same work group, "WORKGROUP".

I use X-setup for all this type of thing cause its more easier to find and you can work on ALL aspects of the computer.

Here is the website for if you do want it: http://www.x-setup.net/


For the workgroup one, do the following:

Right click on the My Computer on your desktop,
Go to Proerties,
Click on the Computer Name Tab. It will tell you there what the work group name is.

If you need to change it mate click on the change button in that is in that tab, and change the Workgroup name to something that the other computers are set to.

You might have to reply that computer after doing this.

I checked and the workgroup name is correct. The problem machine, which my daughter uses at college, is running Novel GroupWise 6.5. Here at home I or she logins to Novel as Work Station only so I assumed that I would then be able to have the machine be part of my home network Workgroup. If I don't login to Novel, I doubt the computer will let me in. Is it possible to have a Window XP computer that operates on both a Domain network and a Workgroup where one choses which at login? That's what I thought logging in as Work Station only would accomplish.
