TO ENABLE SHARED DOCUMENTS YOU NEED TO HAVE A NETWORK CONNECTION(S).

1 . First go to START and select RUN
2 . In the RUN box type in CMD

From here you need to know which computer you want to connect to so you type
net view. Here you will see a list of computers on your network. For example type net view and i get
\\BILL'S PC. and i this is the computer i want so i type
net view \\BILL'S PC to see shared resources on Bills PC. so I type
net use x: \\BILLS'S PC\SharedDocs where x is the drive letter tha you want to assign. (works with printers too)
net use x: \\BILLS'S PC\C$ to share BILL'S localdrive, but this will ask you for a user name and password [you dont want this because its a security issue]

So when you go to your My Computer you will find your assigned drive letter.
thats pretty much it. Hope this helps.

If you're unable to see any other computers...

Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Computer Name and verify the computers are on the same workgroup / domain. Also... the computers will need IP addresses in the same subnet.
