I was able to share file resources without having the Files & Printer Sharing service installed, I have yet to test this with printers but I was curious as to why this is even there? Is this for sharing over the internet or what?

iIt's for sharing files and printers. You ant share with theis service uninstalled. You thought you did , but you did not.

Yes & No. I just did a bit more testing on this & it does function without the FAPS (File and Printer Sharing) service but not completely.

I just re-installed Win2k on the server here & it does not establish new resources, it only allows you to access what has already been established.

Either way though, without the FAPS service installed the FAPS is dodgy & that's not cool. I guess I answered my own question, thanks for your time though.
