So you want to create file and print sharing with your desktop and laptop? You have to go into the Control Panel and double click on Network Connections. On the left side under Network Task, click on the Setup Home or Small Office Network. Go through the wizard and your LAN will be setup. Then, you can map network drives and such. Pretty neat.
