You guys have been really helpful in the past so hopefully someone might be able to help with this question.
I have an old P3 1.1GHz machine with 352MB RAM and 200GB of Disk space and I want to set it up as a file sever to another machine, which is an AMD 64 3.5GHz with 2GB RAM and has 250GB of disc space. Both machines are running Windows XP Pro SP2 with updates and I'd rather not have to change the OS on either of them. The AMD machine has two network ports one goes straight out on to my network and I was thinking that the second one could be connected to the P3 machine and just link them peer to peer. How easy is it to set up file sharing peer to peer between these 2 machines using XP Pro?
Any other hints or tips that anyone has would be appreciated as this is the first time I have attempted this.
Thanks for any advice
