    by networking sharing :P I really don't remember how to this in windows versions under xp, in xp you right click the drive and click Sharing and Security. then on the other pc : access with your windows explorer \\yourip, and it should come up. tweak the permissions if you need to. this is all asumming both computers are hooked up to a network.

    Please don't listen to others because their knowledge of Windows is next to none. All Windows systems have a hidden share for every drive and the only way to map to them without any more complexity would be the following:

    \\IP of hosting machine\c$

    You will be prompted with a username and password dialogue box, which would require you to enter the Administrator username and whatever password is setup on that machine. Once you are authenticated, you willl have full access to the other machine and its C: drive, including the shared folder.

    You cant just "map" a folder, you have to mount the whole drive. If you want to share the folder just right click the folder and go into sharing and security and enable the folder for file sharing.. Make sure you are connected to the same workgroup also. If you want to map a drive then right click the drive you want to map and go to file and security and enable it to be shared. Then go on the other network PC and under tools go to "map a network drive", browse for the drive on the workgroup, and your good to go..

    Hehe, no you may no longer use RAM for any laptop different than the single it quite is put in in. There are quite a few flaws with this concept: - RAM is non-risky memory, so each and every thing saved to it is going to be erased whilst the laptop is close off - you may no longer map RAM memory as hard rigidity area, through fact it quite is a RAM chip, no longer a hard rigidity disc. - you may no longer reformat RAM.... it quite is what it quite is via asking this question, you have shown which you have little or no technical understanding in regards to the basics of ways a working laptop or laptop is built, so i does not propose messing with any hardware on your laptop.
