basically its expecting you to authenticate yourself. Whatever your username
is on windows (find out by going Start.... Log off <username>) will need to
have an account/password on the mac. (How you go about setting up such users
on the mac is beyond me - I only have Appletalk macs here). Then you can
connect using your mac password.
hope that helps,
