Hi Tom!
Not sure if this is the answer but, after turning on file sharing on both
machines, they may each have to be restarted.
Glad you came over from the dark side to a real computer.
Do you have any close friends who can assist you in the transition?  I
suggest asking those close to you for help.  I am sure they would be glad to
help whenever possible.
