Disabling 'password protected sharing' is the same thing as the simple
Guest sharing in XP.
If your XP is Pro it's better to switch off simple file sharing and to
leave password protected sharing on in Vista, but you do then need to
set permission for your users on the shares.
Perhaps get it going with simple sharing and then tighten it up.
