    2k question

    I have just put together a very basic peer to peer network for a friend... I have a problem when trying to access the shared drive on the 2k pro machine, each time it asks for a password, which i don't want... whereas on the xp machines it doesn't ask for one... I know this is probably a basic option somewhere, I just dunno where to look.

    You could enable the guest account, or is that the same thing

    Right Click MY COMPUTER > Manage > Local users and Groups > Users > Guest > uncheck the disbaled box > ?
