Sharing folders with XP SP2 -- must create an account for remote users

Windows XP Home Page

Say you want to share a folder in XP SP2, but you don't have Windows server. As near as I can tell, you have to either enable the Guest user account or create a user account that has the same username string as the username on the remote machine.

Folder and file sharing in XP really expects to work with a proper server and domain manager.

OS X is so much nicer ...
