    firstly disable any firewalls on your laptop, then make sure the drive you want to access has been shared....turn off password protection for your account on your laptop...When I networked Win2k and WinXP machines together at home it was easy

    Also the only reason that your machine would be screaming "password incorrect" is because its been entered incorrectly

    All the firewalls are disabled and I am not putting the password in wrong.
    Any more ideas?

    Is the username you are using on the laptop registered as a user with sufficient priveledges in Windows XP - remember logging in can be denied as a permission even if the account is active.
