[access-uk] Re: wireless network frustrations!

This is the way I share drives/folders.

Wizards are nice, but they can change things you haven't specified.

I wouldn't share the system drive, folders like my documents and data 
folders you create, fine.  However, to share the entire system drive is 
asking for trouble if you're network is infaltrated.

I've my data drives entirely shared over our network here at home and just 
the my documents folder from the system drive shared.

Well, that's the way I came to understand it better and, whether it's really
right or not, I found it helpful.

Just look at the Help in XP under Networking and then go for it.
