File sharing between vista and OS X

I am running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I have file sharing set up between my Vista pc and both my Macs, but on my 24' iMac (OS 10.6) I am unable to drop files from the Vista machine to the Mac.
I can drop files from Mac to Vista though. I can also drag files from the Mac to my Vista pc....
When I try to drop files from Vista to iMac I get a "you dont not have permission to perform this action" message.

The Windows PC need to know the username and password of the Mac user sharing it's files.
This is for 10.5 but 10.6 is the same:

Here's a good 3rd party article that has a pretty good, step-by-step guide:
