    You can go to My Network Places and on the left side it will say:
    Setup a home or small office network

    You click that and follow, you can enable sharing of files and printers, you must do this on both pcs then just back to My Network Places and find the name of the other computer and there ya go.

    In the olden days – about 15 years ago when Windows 95 first arrived on the scene – creating a home network was a fearsome task reserved for the knowledgeable or the courageous.

    That’s no longer the case. Windows XP makes setting up a network easy. The toughest part of the deal is physically installing the hardware; the software side is a minor operation.

    Why network?
    If you are a multiple-computer household, now’s the time to get those computers hitched. Doing so has a lot of benefits. You can:

    Share printers, CD-ROM drives and other removeable drives between the computers.
    Eliminate SneakerNet (passing files around on floppy or CD) and share files directly between PCs.
    Share a single Internet connection between computers (provided your agreement with your ISP allows this type of sharing).
    Play multiplayer games.
    Store only a single copy of large files, saving space on the other PCs’ hard drives.
    You can network computers that run different operating systems, but you’ll find the ideal networking setup for a small home LAN (local area network) is with XP running on your most powerful machine(s) and either Windows 98 or Windows Me running on the other computers. I don’t recommend trying to include computers running Windows 95 in your network unless you are an experienced user.
