Using Shared Folders

LANs were developed to exchange files between computers. Older methods of exchanging information, like dispatching couriers with papyrus scrolls or carrying floppy disks from room to room, just can't match the immediacy of a LAN. File sharing comes down to this: You can tell Windows that other users on the network can use the files in one or more folders on your hard disk, or even on the whole hard disk. Let's say I want to share a folder named C:\ bookwin2000. For its share name on the network, I give the folder the name book, as shown in Figure 22.3.
