Hi Kelvin,

You can share a folder on your XP by the listed method: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304040

Others have an option to connect to your pc as a guest, to make interactive you will need to click on start-> run, type &-> gpedit.msc

Navigate to Computer Configuration-> Windows settings-> Security-> Security Option settings. On the right side, look for-> ' access network: model sharing and security for local accounts "-> double click and select-> classic-Local user authenticate.

Now another pc you can access this computer and you will be asked for the username and password.

I hope this helps.
