Note that by default, on a Windows XP Professional computer, file and printer sharing are disabled. You can run the Network Setup Wizard or go to the Sharing tab in a folder’s Properties dialog box to enable file and printer sharing.

Explain that to share additional folders, you must simply right-click a new or existing folder, select Sharing and Security, and then click the Share this folder on the network check box.
