	In the past I got problems after changing Windows NT/2K/XP
shares and related services, I remember one time that we want
change some options of the administrative share and the computer
stop browsing the entire network. If you turn on the simple file
sharing, does it works?

	Any chances that you have a firewall in XP? Or some other
device blocking access? Looks like it is more related with the
home network and home machines.
