If you go into Computer Management; Administration; User Accounts; do the users exist? If not Add them and what access privileges have you given each user? If security is not an issue, give them full access.

If you still have a problem and have a Firewall running, disable it until you have resolved this problem.

To file share make sure you have turned off the win XP firewall and removed any other like Norton. Then re run the network wizard and once all is working on re install Norton Firewall if you have it or re enable XP's own. Make sure you have the same work group name on all PC's but diff computer names. If in this process you loose the Internet connection you must then create a network bridge.
