Let's say I have a "server" (Windows XP Professional), a client (Windows XP Home) and the setup is as follows:

Internet - Router -> Server --> Client

Server has four drives: Floppy (A), Hard Disk (C), Hard Disk (E), DVD+/-RW (D)

Client has two drives: Hard Disk (C), DVD-ROM (D)

I'm wanting to use the server E drive as the POS drive, and use a program for automated backups to DVD...

Oh, and the workgroup set in XP is RETAIL on both.

Anyone help me out?

Dale, while browsing forums, I found this thread on networking and it helped me greatly. It could be worth a sticky in a thread all to itself.
