Persistent home network problem

Still trying to get my home network to work. I'm trying to get 3 Apples to talk to each other. Mine is a Power Mac hard wired and the other 2 are connecting via Airport. They show up at the network finder icon but when I try to connect I get the following error message -

"Connection failed. Unknown user, incorrect password or login disabled." Retype or contact the administrator.

I have set up all of the computers with accounts and the passwords are correct. What the heck is "login disabled"?

I love the Macs but this is very vexing since I want my wife's laptop to use the printer connected to my computer.

Thanks for any advice.

In system preferences in the sharing folder, I have personal file sharing and printer sharing checked under the services tab. Interestingly, the ibook can use the power Mac's printer without a problem. That helps but I'd still like to have access to the files on the other macs.

Since I've confirmed the accounts and passwords, I suspect that it's something to do with "login disabled" but I cna't find out what that means.

Make sure you have the permissions for the shared folders on each mac set up properly
