    I want to share a hard drive from one computer at home to another computer at my friend's home. Kind of like a wireless network... I'm guessing the best way to do this would be with software of some kind? Both computers are connected via broadband and they're running XP. Let's hear some suggestions :)

    I'd just set up an FTP site for both locations.

    Whats a good program for setting up an ftp server that wouldn't be too hard for a beginner to use?

    One mile? Would you have RF Line of Sight?

    If so Wireless isn't out of the question. Easily don. Just do the ol' yagi from a pringles can and line em up. Just don't let the FCC catch on.

    Nah, it's a pretty built up area, so we wouldn't be able to do it via wireless I don't think.

    really easy to setup, works great, and fairly easy to configure, do a search on yahoo for it, you should find it there, or try tucows.com if you can't find it, let me know I got a copy of it on my HD
