right click my computer or computer depending on the OS
choose properties
advanced system settings
computer name tab
click the change button
under workgroup give it a name (u need the name exactly the same on each machine) u'll probably have to reboot
when all machines are the same
create ur shares and make sure all user accounts are the same on all systems that need to connect to shares

would take me less time to remote u and do this then it does typing all this
