    I have three pcs, all running xp, all connected to a Belkin 4 port hub
    and thence to an ntl broadband cable modem.

    I have recently added a KCorp wireless router, which I'm using as a
    switch, plugged into a port on the Belkin.

    Everything(amazingly) works fine - laptop and all pcs can use the
    internet, see each other etc.

    What I CAN'T do is make any sense of folder sharing permissions.
    Basically I want to be able to use the My Documents folder on my main
    machine from the laptop, The only way I can achieve it is to sert
    Everyone as an object in the sharing/permissions dialogue,

    I can't come to grips with what 'objects' are, even. Can somebody help
    in plain english?

    TIA
