Hello all,

I have three windows XP Pro machines at home setup on a network. It is a workgroup network and not a domain network. When i try to UNC into another machine i get a password dialog box with the guest account greyed out. There is no way to change the user. What am i doing wrong?

I would like to just do \\hostname\c$ and be able to get into my laptop or other desktop without the password dialog box even popping up. Does it have to be a domain network? Thanks guys.
