Please tell me how to allow a user on a winME pc to access her account on a
Winxp home laptop. The xphome laptop has all connections mapped via the
'guest" account. (this is a workgroup, NOT a domain) ?????

Only Pro edition or better will allow a Remote Desktop connection. Her Home account could put files in the Shared Documents folders.

She just doesn't run the software needed to do what she wants. The closest she would get would be Netmeeting (conf.exe) which allows
sharing apps (must drop all firewalls), or some third party remote software.
