  2. Create a "local" account on the machine doing the "sharing" that matches the
    account used to log into the machine that is accessing the share. In other
    words,...you are just following the workgroup pattern of doing things. It
    would be helpfull if the machine doing the accessing has the workgroup name
    the same as the Domain Name, but I think it may work regaurdless.
