    On the XP machine with the shared folder do this.

    Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

    Download the following and install it

    Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools

    after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

    Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

    net user guest /active:yes
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

    The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.
