Windows XP on Network

I am putting together a small network... at the moment the Windows XP box can be seen by other computers. How can I make it so that this box does not show up on any other computers on the network? I am going to be running services on this box that other computers will connect to over specific ports, but I don't want other computers browsing the network to find that particular box and it's list of things like "My Shared Documents" and such... things that Windows automatically creates. Can these be disabled?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In NT and Windows 2000 you could edit registry :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Double click AutoShareServer and set to 0 to disable this for a server
Double click AutoShareWks and set to 0 to disable this for a workstation

If the entry is not present yet, add a value of type reg_dword value

Although i'm not sure if this will also work for XP
