How can I setup a shared network folder that can be seen by everyone on the network?

Q: Hi there!

I want to be able to set up a shared folder that everyone in my office can use to edit the same documents etc. instead of having lose USBs or different versions of the same document saved to different computers. The computer I’m working from is Windows XP but the others may be different.

I’ve managed to create shared folders on one computer but I can’t find/see them on any other computers in the office. I managed to “map network drive” but couldn’t see the other computers as options to connect to…maybe I’m not looking at the right thing.

Any direction?
thanks!

    How big is your office? Is this just a handful of people or do you guys have some kind of an IT staff?
