Default File sharing prob, networked XP boxes

I set this up, assigned the permissions for sharing specific folders and can see folders on both machines, but can't read (prohibited, maybe not administrator, etc) one computer's files on the other machine. Oddly, this is only the case with the one computer.

right click the folder, go to sharing and security, then edit the permissions so you can read the folders, etc. im a bit rusty on xp, but i believe this works on home and pro, but in home you need to go to folder options, and then disable easy file sharing.
