Share folders

  Johnwa 11:24 27 Jan 2008

I have a XP PC & want to allow other users access to some of my folders. If i copy the folder to Shared documents it works OK. But i thought i could also right click the folder & check the Share this folder on network box. A hand appears under the folder ( i assume that indicates its shared), but when i go to the Guest account i can't see that folder. I would like to understand this before i try to share files between different computers.

thanks foe any help.
