We have a 3 computer peer to peer network with 2 XP Home computers and a new
Vista Business laptop with Office 2007. The XP machines talk to each other
and share files effortlessly. The Vista laptop can see both XP machines and
can read files on their drives but will not allow us to save to the shared
drives - what's the trick.
thanks in advance Sam.
