    Don't use Home Group because it is designed for Windows 7 machine sharing (with only other Windows 7 machines) ONLY!!!

    In Windows 7 use the Advanced sharing and you can see about this in the older article File Sharing: Win 7 and Snow Leopard: Introduction. It will be very similar in the OS X section so don't worry.
