Re: file and printer sharing with an xp machine

I did share the folder "shared documents". It is visible and searchable from 
the other machines.
I didn't see any way to check the printers however. Could you give me an 
idea how to get to that setting? I have been crawling around treeviews and 
folders and options all over the place. Oh well.  The obvious places don't 
seem to be the right places.
thx.

do the other machines on the network see and are able to open the items on
that particular machine?

and did you remember to go in and share the folder and printer as well as
clicking the share files and folders checkbox in your networking options?
