well your not going to like what I have to say on this situation. but here it goes. I tried a crossover platform like that before. I tried everything short of taking a hammer to the connection.
After tedious research I found the following out.
Windows XP pro is backwards compatible with Windows XP home. Which means that XP Pro can utilize the XP home computers' files on that kind of connection. However, XP home cannot utilize the files on a XP pro machine.
so unless Microsoft comes out with a patch for that kind of connection, you are left with one of two means of hookup.
a.) use a program like Micorsofts Netmeeting
b.) have all computers set up with either xp pro or xp home.
