4. After the restart, or after canceling the Network Configuration window (because you already had file and print sharing installed), you'll want to specify what folders you want to share. To do so, navigate to that folder via "My Computer." Then, right click on the folder you wish to share, then choose "Sharing." That window is pretty much self-explanatory, and has a lot of options from which a server administrator can choose.
5. You can also share a printer. To do so, simple open up "My Computer" on the desktop, then open up the "Printers" folder. If the printer is correctly installed locally, an icon for it should show up. Do the same to the printer's icon as you did with the folder you wish to share. Just right-click on the printer, then choose "Sharing."
6. The final step is setting up the clients to use the folders and printers you set up to share. This is described on the next page of this tutorial.
