    I have 2 PC's and 1 laptop networked all using xp pro. They can all share the net and all can share drives, folders, files etc. The problem is when I try to change a file on one of the client pc's it says it's read only. I have tried to remove the read only attribute but as soon as I open it up again it back to read only. Any help would be appreciated .Thanks

    how are your shares/permissions set up?
    on the client go and right click on the folder and select sharing and security than select it as Share this folder on the network. Also enable Allow network users to change my files
    Go into the General Tab and uncheck the read-only
    That should be all there is to it.
