I don't know if I'm losing it, or if Windows has really made life harder! I think it's the latter.
So we go on this long road trip, and all the photos from the trip are on my XP machine. I just bought a machine for my dad (Vista), and want to copy all the photos over - so I've been trying to share a folder between my XP and his new Vista machine. Ugh! I still haven't been able to figure this one out.
I figured out some of the things listed in this article myself, but I guess I've a long way to go, for my "shared" folders on both machines are quite invisible. I eventually got the XP machine to show up in my network map!
Now, if only the countries on the map could talk to each other, we'd all be friends!
