Ok, I installed the OSs (2000 Server on one and 2000 Professional on the other), and physically connected both computers together with a Intellinet 5 port 10/100 soho switch. I went into "My Network Places" on both computers and neither computer can see the other. In "My Network Places" I have 3 icons. They are "Add Network Place", "Entire Network", and "Computers Near Me".
In "Entire Network" and "Computers Near Me", there is nothing when I open them. I even created a shared folder on the desktop of each computer and even those are not detected by the other computer. The lights for each computer are lit on the switch, so the switch must obviously be detecting the computers. Why can't they see each other?
Also, on the 2000 Server computer I have a window that popped up called "Windows 2000 Configure Your Server".
