    Hello,

    I followed these instructions for setting up file sharing between an XP box and a 10.5.6 Mac:

    I went with the SMB user account sharing option.

    I see "Macintosh" in my XP's network window yet when I click on it I get this:

    (In XP I'm logged into an admin account.)

    ?

    Thanks.

    Easier way:
    START > RUN
    add the IP of the Mac like mine:
    \\192.168.1.111
    login, make shortcuts on the desktop of the folders you want to access.
    Make you Mac DHCP with a static address so it never changes.
    Map it if you want to do it that way:
    \\192.168.1.111\user
