you can do this:

start>run>type in "//ipnumbergoeshere/" without the quotes

I think that should work.

<edit> or maybe it's \\ipnumbergoeshere\

hell if i know

okay.. copy all the files to floppies... then run them over to his house. easy.

or, teach your friend to set up an FTP (and maybe after that, you could teach him how to read). moron friends suck.

icq or msn messanger can send/recieve files, or heck just get your butts on IRC and DCC the files to each other

why dont YOU set up an FTP server and let him download it off of yours. Using an ftp client is much easier then setting up an ftp server, and even if he cant use the ftp client, you could always go and do it for him.
