I kind of figured it was something like that. The problem is that when I click on the workgroup folder on the new machine, known as Jester, only Jester shows up. No sign of the older machine, known as Camille. When I do the same on Camille, both machines show up in the work group folder but none of the shared folders are there under Jester. So either way, there are no drive folders available to map on either computer, at least that's the way I see it. I know it's not proper for security but I have set the entire Drive C: to be shared on both computers, just to see if they would show up. I know it's probably some simple little thing I'm missing or don't know about. I'm becoming obsessed with making these 2 infernal machines talk to each other when what I should really do is run out and spend the 20 bucks or so for the damn crossover cable, make the direct connection and be done with it.
Thanks for all your help on this, man. I know it'll sink in eventually.
