[<Yigal>] Thanks. I did, but somehow this is very long. I get the
feeling that these guides were written specifically for those who know
everything and don't need guides - I really can't compile this and also
understand it as a newbie. I wish there was a "7 steps to connect to XP
network on home network system guide.

[<Yigal>] Last time I was really brave I did such changes and had to
install all OS from start. Again: as a newbie I prefer to go through
GUIs which show me what I really need for a specific task and do a
sanity check for the variables I enter. At the moment I use the browser
through localhost:901 and could create a share which I even can see from
the XP, however I get the response that this share does not have the
permission and direct me to the administrator, which is me; but I have
no idea what to do now. At least someone calls me administrator. Cool.
