Just hooked up a crosscable for some small LAN, but i was wondering about how to "share" a hard drive on the network. I right clicked it and selected the sharing and security option, enabled the options, but although it appears on My Network Places on the host comp, it doesn't apperar on the client. Help?

Have you run the Windows network setup wizard? Just hooking all the cables up doesn't create a network.

Yes. I've run it on both computers (same OS) and made sure they're in the same workgroup. I ran it on the ICS comp first.
