Actually, no, it's not the same. See the post that was referenced.
Many (I'd say most, as in nearly all) people in a residential
environment are having trouble getting their Vista drives shared and
seen by their XP computers. You have to go through a couple extra steps
in many places.
First off, I don't have ANY experience with Vista so my reply here is
based on my readings. That said, I tend to think you Barry are more
correct because there were several articles that (to me) implied that
networking even Vista to Vista was different so it stands to reason
that Vista to XP is no different. I guess it has to do with Vista of
course. But like I said, I can't speak from experience and you and
Tom have the experience so all I can do is repeat what I've read for
the time being. Anyway I just wanted to have a heads up because I'll
have to deal with networking when I have a newer laptop later (I'm
going to lean away from desktops from now on).
Thanks Tom and Barry.
