Re: Mapping a network drive
Based on what you've described below, I'm assuming that from the XP machine
you are using the browse button to get to the Vista machine? What happens
if you specify the vista machine and share in the Folder: box instead of
clicking browse? Are you able to connect to the share from the XP machine
by going Start - Run -\\<machinename>\<sharename>?
