    Windows Sharing?
    Hi, I'm trying to transfer files from my XP laptop to my new iMac, and someone told me to enable Windows Sharing and log in with your .Mac account. I tried that, and although it logged me in, it says:

    An error occurred opening the folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access this folder.

    550 /Users/abby/abby: No such file or directory.

    Any idea what's wrong?

    Could this not be the right login?
    What exactly do I log in with?

    .Mac? You don't need that. Go to System Prefences > Sharing > and then enable Windows sharing.

    From thereon, in XP, Start > Search > computers or people > enter the IP of the mac > kaboom.
