unable to share pc folder on network

I have succesfully set up a home pc network and set up some shared folders on all the pcs except one. I cannot however get the folders on the last pc to be accessible to the others. The relavant folders have the shared (hand) symbol showing, and the firewall is configured to allow the other computers access, but they can never establish the folders as a network space. Can anyone suggest what else might need to be done.

If the "shared" folders are actually sub-folders, make sure their parent folders aren't set as "Private" as this attribute will be inherited and prevent network access.

No the parent folders are not set as private

What happens if you type the path to the shared folder directly into the address bar in "My Network Places"?
