ok, sorry, i am just writing to myself here...
it says under network neighborhood, that my dads laptop is xp PRO.... but i went down and checked it out and sure enough its xp HOME.. that explains why i cant connect to his... but i can with his to mine...
but why would it say that under the properties under network neighborhood...

Why is states Pro vs Home in Network Neighborhood Properties? I am not so sure of where you mean. Do you see it somewhere when you Right click on "My Network Places" and then select Properties?
May I suggest that perhaps it was simply named that way by your dad.

You can use TightVNC to connect to his from yours. It is free.

no, under network neighborhoods.. under workgroup, is my fathers computer and mine...
if i right click his computer (dads laptop is the name) and goto properties... it says his OS is win XP PRO... (as does mine, mine is pro though, his is home)
just find that to be odd...
