OT: Networking Help Needed 2k/xp

Ok, I installed XP onto my computer. Now, there are 4 computers networked at my house (2 now have XP, 2 have 2000). The problem is no one can get onto my computer, but I can get onto theirs. I haven't tried the other XP one, but the 2 win2k ones can't. I want to install XP on the other gaming computer (since I got 2 COA's courtesy of my High School ^^), but I can't copy stuff over.

I have the right workgroup and stuff.. and I type in the correct user name from the other computers, but it still won't work. Any idea why the win2k machines can't get on to my comp, but I can get onto theirs? Also, my username is Charlie (my name) and there is no password. I am the only user and I am the administrator. I had a password on it, then removed it, then put it back on etc.. but nothing would work.

Thank you,
MrNiceGuy

Have you tried running the Home Networking wizard in XP? If you right click on the folder and choose 'sharing' and then Network Setup Wizard, sometimes that will make sharing actually work again...

Ok, I got it fixed.. some remote access XP crapola. Now I get to reformat another computer (I've done this 4-5 times the past day.. GRR)

Thanks,
