if they are succseffuly networked make sure that you have shared the drive you want to use on the other computer, simply right click on the drive in mycomputer and select sharing, then enable full access, i'm assuming you are running win 95-me
try pinging the other comp if that dosent work uninstall all the protocols reboot and reinstall them

Are you sure you have a physical connection? To check this, make sure the green lights are on on your NICs (you can look at the back of your case to see them)...also double check to make sure your network cards are working right (in device manager)
Make sure they are on the same Subnet Mask.
