Should I be able to see Adminitrator's Documents?

I have two PCs. One running XP-SP2 Pro, the other running XP-SP2 Home.

On the one running XP-SP2 Pro, when logged in as Bill (or as Administrator), listed directly under My Computer, I can see:

- Shared Documents
- Bill's Documents
- Administrator's Documents

On the one running XP-SP2 Home, when logged in as Bill (I haven't booted in to Safe Mode to get at Administrator), listed directly under My Computer, I can see:

- Shared Documents
- Bill's Documents

I.e., in the latter case, I can't see the Administrator's documents. Which is correct (or are they both correct, given different OS)? BTW Bill has Admin privileges on both machines.

If one of them isn't correct (I'd guess the Pro version), what do I need to do to correct this?

BTW, neither Bill's nor Administrator's folder is set up for sharing, whereas, of course, Shared Documents is.

It's the same regardless of whether I'm logged in to both accounts simultaneously or only one at any one time.

Are you sure that you can set up XP Home so that you can access Administrator other than in Safe Mode?

I can't see any reference to it (it doesn't appear in User Accounts) and my reference tome (Windows XP Inside Out) is quite clear that you have to use Safe Mode with XP Home.
