When you say monitor do you mean from your computer or his?

ok...check these.
Network...Y/N
Workgroup...Y/N
Is the Workgroup the same name...Y/N
Same Operating system...Y/N...not necessary but makes it easier.

Those are the basics for netwroking a computer.

These instructions are for Windows XP
On his computer, right click the folder on the menu select sharing.
Click yes to share. Windows will ask you about security...just share.
Reboot.

Then on your computer, Open my computer on the left side select my network it should show up. If not, on the file menu select refresh.
If nothing, up folder to workgroup and double click that. That should do it. If not, check the above list again.

Other OS...ask again being more specific.

Well it will be hard to moniter this due to the fact he can hide things in other folders.

Also, if your both running xp. You can right click my computer, (on his computer) go to properties, computer name, change. Change it to something thats easy like "son".
Then you can go to start, run, "\\son" and you will see all his shared folders. You can also do this in a web browser just the same as typing in a web address except typing the \\son
hope this helps
