Cloudx thanks so much for all your help so far. My laptop is sharing with my desktop. Here is the last problem. My desktop will not share with my laptop. When I type in \\laptop I get this message: The file \\laptop can not be found. Please check the location and try again. I'm not sure why If it works one way why wouldn't it work the other way.

Assuming that you are trying to typing \\laptop from the pc, did you share your desktop on the laptop like i mentioned? on the laptop, find the desktop directory folder and share it by right clicking it and choosing share on the sub menu. you do have file and print services installed for the laptop correct? the laptop is running me or 98 right?
