File sharing problem

I'm trying to access a shared folder on my windows xp machine. i went to map network drive, use different credentials, and typed in the account name and password that i had given rights to on the other computer. but it just reprompted for different credentials.

as a temporary fix i created a user on this computer with the exact same credentials as the ones i typed in, and it works for that user. so apparently the computer didnt understand what i typed in for 'use different credentials'??

i hate file sharing... never easily works the way its supposed to.
