    Hey Everyone

    I;m running os x 10.5.6 on a macbook and windows vista on another laptop. I can't connect to my printer wirelessly from the laptop (not compatible), so I want to be able to print files on my macbook from the other laptop (which is connected to the printer). I've been using this
    http://www.simplehelp.net/2008/07/17/how-access-the-files-on-your-mac-from-vista/
    guide in order to help me make it work, and ive looked at alot of other guides that say the same thing. I have all my settings exactly like these, however when i try to look at the Mac's files from Vista, i can get into the home folder but then cant access any of the other folders (music, documents, etc.) It simply says access denied, does not ask for a password or anything. Anyone know why?? How to fix??

    Go to the sharing section of System Preferences, go to File Sharing, and make sure Macintosh HD or what ever your HDD is called is in the shared area. If not, add it.
