    To create a network
    Start
    Run
    NETSETUP
    ok

    Better to use an account with Administrator privlidges (Not the actual Administrator account - usually only seen in Safe mode)

    I already have a network created on my account and worked, I can see the shared folders but can't access them. The oders users can access my shared folders!
    Thank you!

    when it comes to networks and passwords, sharing and permissions it is better to have an administrator account.

    netsetup will create a floppy disk at the end of the wizard that can be used on all your computers on a network, making them all the same
    You will need to re-share your folders again
    But I recommend doing this.
