laurie, I don' think you need to make more than one copy of the same post. It will eventually get confusing for people when they do reply. If people aren't answering it's probably not because they aren't reading it its because they don't know what to suggest.

In short the answers are 1) no the person d/stairs will not be able to see what you are doing on the. 2) you will need to network both machines and set up sharing (for files/printer etc) both machines can then share the internet connection, but a word of warning unless you are on broadband the connection will be VERY slow! hope this helps, if not post back and will try to be more specific

With that attitude I'm sure you will do well here.

Elrond was trying to give you some guidance, but you don't seem to appreciate his efforts.

Thanks Old PC Man. I was only trying to give her guidance, but as with a lot of things, they get thrown back in your face.

Some people are nice to deal with, others "whatever"

Response is conspicuous by its absence on this one eh?
