    I have a D-Link 624+ router and a NIC from D-Link. My Internet connection is
    ADSL thro a USB ADSL Modem connected to a Intelp4 machine running Windows XP
    Home. In order to be able to share the internet connection for browsiing on
    my Mac Powerbook I had to shut off the DHCP setting on the DLINK router.
    I am unable to mount a Windows SMB volume from my Mac which is on the
    network. I get an error message after the authentication screen. I am logged
    in as an administrator on my windows machine and have set up file sharing
    but I have no password to login as I did not specify any when I installed XP

    Any solutions for mounting let us say drive C of my windows machine on my
    Mac(OSX 10.2.8) desktop???

    Did you set NTFS security to allow access?

    Windows XP "Home" does not support mounting the C:\ drive at the root level,
    for that you need XP Pro. You can share selected folders this may help and
