My apologies if a solution has been posted elsewhere; I've searched but to no avail.

My problem:
I would like to create a home network between an iMAC running OSX Leopard with a PC running Vista (ack!) using a wired DLink router. At the moment we are sharing our internet using the router, but I would like to be able to share a printer and some folders using a home network.

(I switched routers from a wireless LinkSys, not a fan of their service, and noticed our connection speed seemed slower as well)

I have no idea on how to start, so if anyone can help or point me in the direction of a simple tutorial...much appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks

Just a bit of quick Googling turned up the following:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
