File+Folder sharing (with "net use") between WinXP and WinME not working.

    From my local WinXP (+SP2) (or other Win2000) system I want to access a remote computer with WinME.

    Yes, I know WinME is an old system but I cannot change it.
    I want to access some folders resp. the whole C: partition on the remote computer.
    Whatever I tried I could not get it working.

    For example I entered:
    net use K: \\84.141.***.**\C$ /USER:84.141.***.***\karl

    System error 53 has occurred.
    The network path was not found.

    I setup folder sharing between WinXP and Win2000 systems a couple of times successfully but the
    setting under WinME are somehow different.
    Firewall are (temporarily) disabled on both systems

    So what setting do I have to choose under WinME:

    - How do I detect if file(+printer) sharing is already successfully enabled on WinME system ?
    - How do I enable file+(printer sharing) otherwise ?
    - Do I need NetBIOS enabled on the WinME system ?
    - How do I enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on a WinME system?
    - What is the default partition sharing name under WinME (is it "C$" similar to WinXP) ?

    - If folder sharing/partition between WinXP and WinME is not possible over NetBIOS:
    Are there any other alternatives which enables me to access the remote folder/partitons?

    Any help is appreciated

    Thank you

    Seeing that your questions are all about WinME (see the list above),
    your numerous cross-posts to WinXP are somewhat irrelevant and
    the reason for the one to Win2000 is a mystery. Please use cross-posts
    appropriately and in moderation.
