I currently have an older desktop (XP SP3, Sempron 3000+, 1GB RAM, Geforce 6600GT, etc.) and I'm receiving my new laptop (on my system specs) on Monday. I want to enable file-sharing between the two, but I'm something of a novice when it comes LAN's. Part of the reason I want to do this is to expand my knowledge base, so if possible I want to avoid the use of a networking wizard. Most of what I find with Google is either gear toward the computer virgin or toward Computer Science majors. What I am looking for is either: advice here in this thread, a networking site for experienced users, or a downloadable guide. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
