You need to right click the folder you wish to share and allow it to be shared. You could of course right click the c:drive and allow the whole drive to be shared. Not zone alarms fault.

i've already done that and shared across the network

just a suggestion set the firewall to medium for internet and low for trusted. that is how mine is set.

if you set it to low i get a warning about the firewall switching it self off

xp dosn't let you see personal documents over a network normally , i would just put all files to be shared in shared documents. I think this is just xp trying to be helpfull, and failing!!
