It's XP Pro. I know I turned on "Simple" after reading some other message but
that didn't help. I have each drive letter set to share all functions. I'm
not sure what you mean by advanced. Where would I find that? How do I tell
what authentication it is using? I do have Guest for each computer turned on.
Can you tell me how it should be set up? Is it a problem with the XP or the
I seem to think it's the Vista computer since I didn't have a problem with
any other operating system until now. I have 2000, ME, XP Pro, XP Home, NT
all working ok together.
I'll also read over your site this weekend while I'm at that computer. I'm
offsite now. I still have to test my laptop (XP Home) going to Vista, but I
know Vista goes to the laptop ok without coming up with that login box.
