access to window2000 workstation share folder

I have onw windows 2000 workstation and one windows XP, they are connected as workgroup. When I tried to access  shared folders on the windows 2000 workstation by click the machine, I was asked to input user name and password. However, from 2000 workstation to windows XP workstation does not require user name and password, just show all shared folders directly by click the machine name. How can I make windows 2000 workstation works the same as windowsXP wrokstation?

Windows 2000 will work the same, as long as the XP user is logged in with a name and password that are valid on the Win2000 machine.

Enable the guest account with blank password on the win2k computer, deny logon locally for guest in the local security policy (in case u dont want anybody to log on as guest) and add guest in the share permissions
