Enable guest account on all machines,
Enable simple file sharing on all machines,
Upgrade the SP1 machine to SP2,
share drives/directories for each machine as required...

As an optional extra map the required drives/diectories on any machine as required.

That is basically it.

The above assumes you have taken the defaults and are using a workgroup, likely called WORKGROUP on each machine...

You may wish to check you can ping each machine before going down this route - that is pretty much taken for granted.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
