    I have just linked up my Main desktop and my Macbook Pro (with Leopard on) with wireless and everything seems to be working fine. What I am wondering is if I can now network the 2 systems and share files between them on the wireless network? I had a look around on my copy of Leopard and found a creat network thing but it says it is not compatible with WPA and my system is using WPA2. So is this possible?

    Can you give more information as to your network setup? If you have a wireless router that both computers are connected to it is really easy. Just turn on (windows) file sharing in the Sharing system preferences panel. (Note: In 10.5 they moved the windows option into the option button of file sharing/it isn't a unique entry anymore.) Then make sure your firewall is set to "set access for specific services."
