How to set the sharing properties of a drive?

Question

I have a laptop(HP) and a DELL desktop. Both are currently using File and Printer sharing over the DSL wireless connection. However, I would like to network them in some usefull way for the sake of learning and being high techi. Also, is there a way for me to share the entire C: on the other one? I wish not to install the same programs and use the hard drive on my laptop. I wish to make my DELL the 'Applicaiton Server' or something.

Thanks for all your help

Since you're using windows xp it will be easy to share the information, all you have to do is right click on the c drive and go to sharing and security From here you'll be able to share the entire c drive.--Robert Outlaw
