I'm pretty sure hoksha is right. I run windows pro and i tried to share the folder and it worked. But i tried it on home and no luck there....

Yes, that is one of benefits of XP Pro. It has better networking and sharing options like that. Well, that sucks.... XP Pro is pretty cheap now if it is absolutely necessary I'm sure you can trade in your XP home and get Pro for like $20-$50.

Thanks, a ton guys. I checked out Microsoft and you cannot share the admin$ on XP Home. That is definitely a security advantage. That disables quite a few tools though...the PsTools suite for instance.
