Ok I'll start ou with my system specs...


AMD Athlon 3500+
74GB WD Raptor
XP Pro
ASUS MB w/ onboard Marvell Gigabit LAN


Intel P4 2.4
1st HD Samsung 80GB
2nd HD WD 80GB
both are IDE
XP Pro SP2
VIA p4p400 MB w/onboard LAN

Linksys BEFSX41 Firewall/Router

OK so the problem Im having is I am sharing the 2nd HD on PC2 since I use is for all of my downloads and file storage. I mainly access this drive from PC1. The computers are setup in a work group and I have the 2nd HD on PC2 mapped on PC1. I seem to have lag time of 30-40 seconds when accessing the drive across the network, but only when your changing directories or opening a file. I am looking for instant access to the drive with no lag time is there anything I can do to help this?

On the mapping properties, would "connect this drive at startup" speed this process up? The way I see it, mapping and actually connecting are two different aspects. I do this and my boot-ups are now a bit longer while it connects everything back up.
