Multi-OS network help

  1. A step-by-step wuide to how to set up a wireless home network would be great.

    Yoda - Master browser computer (wired to the router and dsl modem) running
    XP pro
    - ip address: 192.168.1.101

    Deathstar - desktop running Win 2000 Pro
    - ip address: 192.168.1.100

    Podracer - laptop running XP Home
    - ip address: 192.168.1.102

    From Yoda I can see the other two computers in the MSHOME workgroup. I
    cannot access anything on either computer from Yoda.

    How can I set up a file sharing/printer sharing network for these computers?
    All the help I have found on the web so far is concerned only with computers
    that are all running the same OS. I have three!

    Help!

  2. Hi
    Being Wired or Wireless is not important to the issue of Sharing Files on a
    network.
    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.
