Problem browsing between 2 XP computers


I just reinstalled 2 machines at work, both running XP professional. I disabled simple file sharing, installed netbios, and created a folder called "shared" on the C drive.

Whenever I try to browse from one machine to the other, trying to access the shared folder, XP tries to connect using the "guest" account. The funny thing is that trying to connect from one of those 2 problem machines to other machines at the office, it allows me to enter a userID and a password?

How do I change this between those 2 machines?
