    there are many many ways to skin this cat - but... I can guess what you want is to simply be able to share directly....

    You should enable Guest accounts on both machines and ensure simple file sharing is turned on - then share the drives ro whatever you need to have shared. That's it in a nutshell...

    Now for a more comprehensive approach go out and get a file server - attach that by CAT5 to your router, have fun installing FreeBSD and configuring and then use a suitable FTP clietn to shunt files around from one to other via yhour file server and you'll probly never lose one in transit! Another way to skin your cat - and you'll learn more but it is probly not what you want.
