Okay, so I decided to enable sharing of stuff over a network with my PowerBook. When I tried to access it from another computer, it prompted for a username and password, so I used the account's password. My main problem is that now it does NOT ask for the password on that computer anymore, and I really would prefer that it did. So my first question is how to make the Windows computer stop being able to just access my stuff freely, while keeping sharing an option. My second question is how to make it so that other computers on the network can access stuff on my computer without entering any password from specific shared folders. I guess that would be it. Thanks in advance, guys.

reboot it.

passwords are good for a complete session in windows. if you authenticate once to something it will cache the password until a reboot.

Yes, I realized this and acted on it as soon as I remembered. Thanks for the response, though.
Is there a chance you know an answer to the second part? I'd really just like people in my network to be able to go \\blah and have it go to a specific folder on my hard drive so they can get projects I'm working on.
