    My win2000 all I have to do is right click on any folder and check
    share this folder and your done. On my xp system you have to drag
    the folder from your C or D drive and drop it into the shared
    folder. So Then it disappears from the C and goes under C:\Documents
    and Settings\All Users\Documents. I don't like that. I want to
    share it but not move the folder. Is it like that on all xp systems,
    or is it just my settings? Thanks.

    Disable simple file sharing view in Windows Explorer.
