    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.
