    Unhappy accessing Samba's shared folders from Windows?

    Hi, so I'm trying to share some folders from my Ubuntu 7.10 laptop with my Windows XP SP2 desktop, but when I try to access the folders, Windows asks me for a user name and a password. I tried my Ubuntu user name and pw with no luck. I even tried the root user and I created a different user to try, but still not working help please!!
