you should have noted the ip's should be placed under alternate config.

This is _exactly_ what happened to me (other than the internet conenction). Anyways, on the desktop, make sure that you have added tcp/ip and netbeui (sp?) protocols for your adapter (control panel>network). I had done that and it only worked sometimes, so I re-installed the protocols and it worked fine from then on. On the TCP\IP properties for the adapter, set to a static IP, 192.168.0.x on each computer (for instance, on my setup I had .3 and .10) If I remember correctly that was about it. If its not working still, check to make sure you have file sharing enabled (not sure if you have to, but if your out of luck, might as well give it a try). Good luck!
