[Samba] Accessing User Directories on XP Home from C:\ Share

I'm having problems accessing the user directories in C:\Documents and 
Settings\ on XP Home. I'm sharing C:\ and can get to most files, but 
when I try to access C:\Documents and Settings\Tony\, it gets upset. I 
believe that this is being caused by something called 'Simple File 
Sharing' on XP Home, and while you can turn this off on XP Professional, 
you can't on XP Home.

I'm trying to backup various parts of C:\ over samba is there a way to 
get around this, or should I solve the problem in a different way?
