Default Computers Near Me

This is more of a networking question than anything, I'm wondering how you can see computers that are connected to you via LAN on XP. I recall there was a computers near me function in W2K, but I don't know, this subject has just eluded me the entire time that I've been using XP, so does anyone have some insight on this subject, much appreciated thanks!

Just double click on the "Network" icon on the desktop. If you don't have it, it might be on your start menu. The computers have to have the network setup wizard run on them to have them connected to the network though.
