Good Luck with your file sharing.
The new file sharing "features" of Vista are the primary cause of it's utter
and complete failure. Vista lacks backward compatibility with windows XP
file and print sharing. If you want to share files with xp you will have to
install LLTD package on the xp pc. Also, the different capabilities of home
basic, premium, ultimate, and business overly complicate what should be very
simple, and bring the MS practice of nickle and diming to a whole new level.


I don't see any benefit whatsover to upgrading to Vista, and imagine Server
2008 is also just another ploy to bleed money from the consumer.

RE: Good Luck with your file sharing.
All you have to do in XP is run the Network Setup file and Printer sharing
wizard AGAIN, after adding Vista computers to your Network, and make sure
XP's workgroup is the same as vista's.

I don't install LLTD!
