It's xp home, the users does'n't need to exists on every workstation. The access is done using the guest account.

Verify if the guest account is not disabled.

it could be switched to non-retard version if I recall.  I hate the "im helping" version of file sharing... and that is scary if guest account has access.
Does that automatically add guest to the NTFS permissions?  if so again, scary.

have you gone to the properties for the shared folder and checked the permissions.  Change them to full control to allow the other users to change and delete files.

Hope this helps
