    whats the easiest damn way to network my laptop (running home) and my desktop (pro)? I can see the damn shares, but not access them.

    what the hell am i doing wrong?

    //bart/share is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. blahblahblah.

    Check the "Allow users to change files" or the security settings to allow the shares to be writeable...

    Is file and print sharing enabled on each machine? I would imagine that if you can at least see the shares it should be, but I would double check.

    Also, it helps to give each machine a common user/pass to avoid any other issues.

    i haven't used FAT in ages. I've got no idea how the dell was formatted though.

    and file sharing IS turned on both.

    Check firewall settings to allow those computers to access.

    Try this.
    1. Disable Simple File sharing on all machines.
    2. Set up the exact username/password on machines.
    3. Open command prompt on your main machine that you want to access the other machine and type the following.

    net use x: \\computername\y$ /PERSISTENT:YES

    x = random drive letter (just make one up that is NOT already in use)
    computername = name of computer
    y = Drive that you are trying to access
    So, if you want to be able to acces the C drive of a pc on your networked that is named CSLoad and you want it to be known as the Z drives, type in the following:

    net use z: \\CSLoad\c$ /PERSISTENT:YES

    4. Begin accessing files
    5. ???
    6. Profit
