Hello, my name is Chery and I'm glad I found this forum. I'm not into networking yet, but am going to try. I'm 55, female, love cats, computers, and lots more. I have a friend who has three computers hooked up as a network, two have XP home edition and one XP Pro, and he's having trouble, so I will probably contact you for help on his issue soon, and of course referr him to this forum! My experience is mostly software related - even as far back as DOS4 and dBaseIIIPlus and I even created forms in excel for military doctors to use worldwide, but it's never too late to learn more.
