    XP Home seems to allow only 5 computers to share a shared folder
    at once. Is this limit changeable somewhere?

    I can script around it but would rather not, if it's not necessary.

    Ron Hardin,
    Limit is by design:
    XP Home = 5 connections at a time.
    XP Pro = 10 connections at a time.

    See the following MS article:
