    Everything is on a domain and I changed all the settings so it gets internet, etc. Now I want it to be able to use a network printer but I cant access other computers on the network. It asks me to put in a username and password. Im just doing simple file sharing but dont know what else there is after that. Computers are using Windows XP Pro. Help?

    See what users are on the machine you are wishing to connect to and provide those credentials.

    Thanks for the simple solution. Mostly everyone else on the network has the same username:pw but this computer was from another network before with different credentials.

    um, are you sure this is a domain? If so, why not integrate into your domain's active directory?
