    I have two XP machines. Each can view the others' Shared Documents and
    Printer ok. I want to give both machines full access to ALL the drives,
    folders and files on both machines. How do this - adding to My Network
    Places?

    No you don't.
    Really, you don't want to do that.
    Trust me, this is a bad idea.

    Right click the drive(s) in my computer and select sharing. Ignore all
    the warnings ;-)
