Peer to Peer cant see Shr. Logical Drive

By sloowwhand ·
This is a small office peer to peer network. (note: I did not set this network up. I'm just trying to make it work) The so called "Server" is a WinME machine with a HDD that has an extended partition with 2 logical drives "I" and "K". There is a DSLgateway for Internet access. I installed a new Win98se PC on the network and manually installed the Gateway IP in TCP/IP properties. The ISP DNS Server dynamically assigned the IP and subnet addresses to the new PC. I'm able to access the Internet ok and the new Win98se PC can see the WinME "C" drive but not the I or K drives. Also I have to open My Network Neighborhood to see the WinMe C drive, I do not see it in Windows Explorer. What must I do inorder to see the C, I and K drives of the WinMe server on the new Win98se PC? I want to be able to see them in Windows Explorer and not have to open my Network Neighborhood to see them.

In order to see these shares in your windows explorer you need to map the drives. To do this simply right click "my computer" choose the drive letter you want it to be on your new machine...choose I for I and K for K if you wish. In order to map it,where the map drive box says folder (or share) type the path as \\winme_machine_name\I for the I drive and substitute K for the next drive...oh yes, and do the same for C but you will have to give that a different drive letter under your new machineas C will already be taken.
Good luck!

Thank you!, Thank you!,Thank you!. Your advice was perfect. Drives are mapped and the office is happy. I'm still learning alot when it comes to practical application of networking principles. I have knowledge but not alot of experience. Thanks again.
