As I told you before -- always CC the list.  You'll get a faster 
response and broader spectrum of experts.

Are you using XP Home on your system?  That OS won't allow you to do 
what you want -- it's brain-dead (more like purposefully lobotomized by 
Microsoft) networking forces all incoming users to the "guest" account.  
You need to upgrade to Linux or XP Pro.  XP home is fine for standalone 
machines, but isn't adequate for networked use.
