Does anyone have a easy method of doing this. At my home I have a laptop with windows 7 and a mac desktop with 10.6 on it. I can see my mac folders from my windows computer but do not have the permission to open any of them.

If every user was named George and had the same password, this problem would be less likely.

I have an ftp server up on my mac so that any other computer on our network can see it. It's supposed to work outside the network too, but I haven't set that up yet.

You should first turn on windows file sharing in your networking Preferences pane. Then set your shared folder permissions with username and password. The networking prefs pane will give you the network address to access the mac.
