    Remote Desktop would be the simplest thing to implement.

    To enable it on your pc: Right click My Computer, Properties, Remote, Tick the box that says allow users to connect remotely to this computer. This is for XP Pro, I'm not sure if it works on XP Home, that is assuming you're running XP.

    Another alternative would be to download the free VNC.

    hi there,
    i know for sure that if you want access to your files from your lappie you need to select the files you wish to share.
    in order to share the selected files,right click on the files icon,click security and sharing.....it will take you to a screen where you can enable file sharing through your network, just remember to set your workgroup name on all machines to be networked!!
    hope this helps a little m8

    Sparky these steps are not necessary if you are using remote desktop to access another computer, as advised to the OP. They are only necessary if you are using Windows file and printer sharing, which is a different method.
