I can't find where you are referring to.  I set up the Windows 7
machines as PUBLIC and provided the correcet WORKGROUP but traditional
windows networking does not seem to be installed in the LIGHTT version
of Windows 7. Maybe you have the higher version with all the bells and
whistles installed. Is that the case?
