I am trying to set xp home with a guest account login. I am not able to set up an internet connection for the use of e-mail, although xp says "create a guest acc so they can check email"
it says lack of authority. can anyone point me in the right direction?

You need to log in as the administrator then you will be able to do it..

You can also go to the MS Knowladge Base type in Win XP then under that type in set-up Guest account. You will get many items of help there

are you saying log into the guest acc as an administrator, if so how? when using my account (which is admin) all i can seem to do for the guest acc is turn on or off or change the picture. you can not change its privilages.

You can't alter its privlages.. Its set by default.. all you can do is set up a new user and give it the privlages you want then set it to Limited..
