help! how do I configure a win-me in a Windows 2000 network

Hi Great Guys

I am apol2, am new here.
I got this problem configuring a computer with an OS Windows ME  and cannot be seen in the network (peer to peer) with 4 computer machines with OS Windows 2000, I would like to configure WinME to be able to share in a network printer connected with one of the computer with Windows 2000 OS.

RE: help! how do I configure a win-me in a Windows 2000 network

Make sure that the user name and password (if applicable)of the ME machine  is added into the users on the Win2000 machine that you want the resource(printer)from (if there is no password on the ME machine - make sure that in the user setup on the 2000 machine the box is checked to not use a password). Make sure that they both are in the same workgroup. Make sure the printer is shared on the 2000 machine. Reboot both machines - it should work! If you want all the 2000 machines to be seen by the ME one then you have to also add the user name (and password - if applicable) to each machine.
