    I have a main computer running Vista and I was wondering how I make it's shares available to all the XP systems in the house. I had it working yesterday but now it won't go anymore again. Do I have to setup a user account for the people accessing it or can I just leave it open to anyone to access like I could on XP? Any help would be great.

    Reality is this. Vista is not anymore complicated, nor is it easier to network than XP. It takes a little know how, so your neighbor across the street is not in your data to make it accessible to everyone you want.
