IF it were me, I would set each computer to a static ip. Say:
Then I would create a batch file of net use commands to ensure that when the computer starts up, you could have a network drive that will appear in the "My Computer" listed as Shared folder on Karens.
To do this, set every computer to have its own address in the TCP/IP settings. Dont forget about the gateways and dns. Then open your "My Computer" and in the address bar, type \\(IP ADDY OF COMPUTER). IE: \\192.168.1.101, this will take you to that computers shared documents/printers. Look at the folder names and move them to one side of the screen. Then click Start>Run. Type cmd and hit ok. From here type the word "net use" (no quotes). This will let net use remember all new commands. Then all you need to do is type the following to share a folder as a network map.
net use g: \\192.168.1.101\Shared Documents
This is going to place a new "Network Drive". The g: being the "Drive Letter" you want. Could be Z for all you care. Anyjehews, making a batch file is easy, but im sure this solution will be best for you. Message me if you want more info. or need more assistance making a batch file.
