Share CD-DRive

Hi

this should be fairly simple to rectify.

Set windows NT up on your network as normal (IP address on same range, same workgroup). on the PC with the CD-Drive right click it and select share. Gice it a short simple name such as CD.

Once the Nt system has rebooted for the network changes you should be able to map a network drive (right click my computer, select map network drive, navigate to the PC with the CD-Rom and select the CD drive)

Once this is done you should see the network drive in my computer. pop your cd in, double click and that should be it.
