Another solution is to choose a directory elsewhere on the computer
which XP won't nag about you sharing, then configure both clients to
use them from that location.

| Pull up a command prompt and type
| 
| net share dnetc="c:\program files\distributed.net"
| 
| then on the non modem machine use \\<modem computer name>\dnetc as
the
| remote buffer directory.

| Windows XP's nannying does gets annoying at times!
