unable to share files on my lan

hi Guys,
i have 2 win XP home machines, and 2 win 98se machines. they make up my lan network. i can see all PC's from any one of the machines, i can open the shared folder from any one of the machines.
what i can not do is open the file that is on the #1 win XP home box from the #2 XP home box. i cannot copy and paste. the win 98se machines have no problem getting the files and changing them and saving them back.
Any thoughts on this??
thanks.

  1. Try creating usernames in the winxp boxes. Ex:

    Logged on in XPbox 1 as user1
    Logged on in XPbox 2 as user2


    Create a user in the XPbox 2 with called user1 with the same password
    Create a user in the XPbox 1 with called user2 with the same password

    Note these are general examples in your case the user names would be different.

    Cheers and good luck!
