  1. hi,
    I have a windows xp pro setup to share files but when I go to permissions the only computer I can use to give user accounts permissions is the 1 im on...Is it possible to give a specific windows home edition permission to a xp pro share without using the "everyone" group...the workgroups are the same....thanks for any help...

    XP home does not support Domains. So... effectively, no.
