    Hi, I'm about to receive my Dell laptop in the mail this week and I was wondering how to setup my wireless network to where my laptop can read files off the desktop, like my music. I'm also sharing the wireless with my roommates and we would like to share each other's files. I could have sworn all you had to do was right click on the folder and enable sharing, but XP is acting stupid. I miss win2k.

    Make sure you're all on the same workgroup. And just basically enable file sharing.

    Be sure you configure Share level permissions under the Share tab, and also File System permissions under the Security tab. Both need to allow your buddy access...otherwise the more restrictive of the two will take effect.
