Home Network. Wireless router, Wired workstation with WinXP Pro SP2, 2 wireless laptops, one with WinXP Pro SP2 and the other with Vista Enterprise.

After fighting with settings I finally got the Vista laptop to see and access shared folders on the wired workstation. The XP Laptop has no problems with any shared folders. What I cannot do is access any files in the user folders under c:\Documents and Settings with the Vista Enterprise. :huh: WinXP is fine with the same folders.

I know vista is fussy about permissions. It there a workaround aside from copying stuff to a different location?
