win xp pro 32-bit pc can't access files in win xp pro 64-bit pc

Hello! The 2 problems are: 1) win xp pro 32-bit pc can see the win xp pro
64-bit folders in the network but cannot access the files instead asks for
log-on name and password (which I never set up); 2) Can't access the printer
attached to the 64-bit xp. I got everything setup properly: shared the
folders and files in the permission, shared the printer attached to the
64-bit xp. I can access all the shared folders and files in the 32-bit xp
from the 64-bit xp. The question is: why is the 32-bit xp is asking for
log-on name and password when accessing the files? Thanks in advance for any
help or leads.

This has nothing to do with 32 or 64-bit. Create identical user accounts
*and* passwords on both machines. You can set each computer to
automatically log into your user account for convenience if so desired.
