Hi ive got a router for shared internet access (me on PC with ethernet cable and sister on laptop with wireless)

I want to let my sister access my computer so she can access some files, i used windows xp network setup wizard and selected a folder she can access.

when i went to her pc and clicked on my network places nothing was there so I clicked on view workgroup computers and my pc showed up but she cant seem to access it, it says she doesnt have permission or something.

what am I doing wrong?

also the folder I made sharing is in my network places but I cant open it as it neds a password??

think ive buggered it up some how.....

any help would be great.
