    Default W2k pro does not see shared folders on Xp Home

    I've got a small network with 2 computers. One is Windows
    2000 Professional and the other is Windows XP Home. PROBLEM
    IS: notebook with xp home can browse all shared folders on
    pc with Windows 2000, not viceversa. Workgroup is the same
    and when I ping from PC Win2000 to the other PC with XP
    Home I get the correct IP address but no replies. I have
    got internet connection sharing to a router and a DSL
    connection. Everything works fine with that.
    When I click on the notebook with XP Home I am asked to
    give user id and password, but no password has been set and
    no users can be managed with xp home.
    Can u give me some help ?

    thanks in advance

    the easiest way is to install NETBEUI on WinXP.
    It is not supported already, but there is on XP cdrom
    with instruction how to add it.
