David:

I have gotten access, but it aint pretty,

I copied the section share info from the public share, and changed the
path on it to the pictures, and then chmod pictures to 777.  That has
solved it temporarially, but that's only good till school restarts.  

I am running windows XP pro, and I suspect it is not a problem on the
windows end, because, my home share I can access without any problems
