Default Re: XP and Vista sharing

i think i know what's up.
vista is weird when it shares drives with xp systems.

i'm on my xp computer and wont be at my vista machine for a couple days (mobo died)
what you have to do is right click on the drive and access the sharing properties.
then click permissions (or w/e it's called to get to the place where you can change the users and full control stuff)
go to edit so that you can add a person/group.
then get to a place where you can search for users. click advanced search or search and double click the "everyone" and click add.

this will allow it to be viewed from an xp machine.

sorry if its incorrect in some parts but i have no way to replicate it on my xp machine and view if it's correct.
