password needed for network, please help

>>> whenever i try to acces shared docs from another pc it asks for a password <<<

You may have to be logged into both PCs with an identical Username and Password. If necessary set up a new user account in the 'host' PC you are trying to access so that it matches the 'client' PC's login.

I actually got so fed up with XP in an NTFS drive playing silly beggars when I tried to access files over the network that I created a new FAT32 partition and put all the files I need to share into that - no more problems with access denied or (non-existent) password requests.
