On the XP machine check the guest account in control panel -> users      and     simple file sharing option in windows explorer -> options

If both machines are in the same domain, and the user account logged into the 2000 machine also has access to the XP machine, that is definately the way it will work.  (And if the folder on the XP machine is configured to allow access to "everyone", then they will always have access.)  

Obviously if you want a different behaviour, you would need to change those permissions.
