    is there some easy non-gonna-cost-a-fortune way to link my laptop & desktop together?
    you know like a network so i can manage files between the two?

    I tried network wizard thing, but lol... lets not get into that.

    If you guys are both plugged into a router just enable file and print sharing and make sure your in the same workgroup O0

    Turned on the file and print sharing and I still can't figure out how to bring up the other computer.

    Your machines probably arent in the same group. Right click My Computer, select properties, then click the Computer Name tab. Check to see what workgroup each machine is in. They both need to be in the same group for this to work. Once thats done, share out a folder on each machine. Then go to My Network Places and see if the folder shows up.
