Re: sharing files and folders on a network
If I remember this right, Network Neighborhood uses the old NetBEUI
protocol that was the standard protocol on Win 9x. On Windows XP, this
is not installed by default so you will have to go and install it from
your installation CD. Internet Connection Sharing will not be affected
because it uses TCP/IP. Network Neighborhood is a peer-to-peer
networking program which commonly uses NetBEUI. Hope this gets you
sorted out OK.
