    My computer is on a peer-to-peer LAN, and whenever a peer computer tries to access my shares, they are required to enter a username and password. How do I let peers access shares without this headache? I'm using W2K Pro, and my peers are using Win XP Home.

    Create an account on your machine with the same name and password as the clients are using, they will be able to access file shares without a password.
