File Sharing from a Mac to a PC Issues

I am trying to share a folder on the Mac (Leopard) to my Windows XP laptop. I went into System Prefs, clicked on Sharing, added the folder called TwoTB and it seemed to work (more or less). That is all it took.

"It sounds like guest connections got disabled. The checkbox to reenable it is in System Preferences -> Accounts pane -> Guest Account in the sidebar -> ""Allow guests to connect to shared folders"".

BTW, if you want to allow non-guest access to the shared files from Windows (i.e. get it to accept the account passwords), you need to enable Windows compatability for each account in System Preferences -> Sharing pane -> File Sharing -> Options -> the list of user accounts under ""Share files and folders using SMB (Windows)""."
