    My network is using WindowsXP on a desktop and I want to share some of the
    files with the other 2 notebooks in this network. However, for some reason
    when I view "My Network Places" the files that I am sharing are listed
    under "The Internet" instead of "Local Network" What could be causing this
    problem? How can I correct this? Thanks for any help in correcting this
    problem.

    Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
    http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
    to be shared.
