    From what I remeber, Network Neighbourhood appears when u have a network installed. You can always use \\compname or \\ipaddress in the run command.

    i think in order to have "network neighborhood" appear on the desktop you need "Client for Microsoft Netoworks" configured in then Network control panel applet. The option will be in a dropdown menu under the words "Primary Network Login" once you open the network applet. once you add the "client for microsoft networks" you will get the thing on the desktop

    im not 100% sure but im pretty sure this is how it appears if i remember correctly

    Can't you also insert the XP disk into that machine and perform some kind of networking update?

    Been a while since I checked that out.

    I think celticfan11 may have it.

    Say everything needed is installed and the icon is on the desktop the question is:

    are there any options available to access network neighborhood aside from the icon on the desktop?

    thanks for the inputs......
