    PLease help,
    I am sure you have all heard this sort of thing before so please be patient, I would appreciate it.

    I have purchased 2 clamshell ibooks one graphite the other blue (366)
    They have airport cards and I have setup the software server and a network as computer to computer, they both see the network, both have file sharing switched on and a shared files folder on the desktop.
    Both see the network and have strong signal strength.

    What on earth do I do next where do I see the shared file of the other computer, I have looked in network neighbourhood and apple talk, nothing there, where should the other persons shared file be found?

    currently using 0s9.2.2, but X on order with some RAM.

    Thanks for any help

    I might be wrong but with Mac OS9 to share files with Windows, you needed Dave from Thursday Software. In MacOSX, Windows sharing is relatively painless. You need to turn on Windows Sharing in prefs panel, and set up shares on the Windows PC.

    I am just sharing ibook to ibook with the computer to computer network option, it's all MAC, I just don't know where to look for the other computers folder once connected?
    Should it appear on my desktop?
