Error message trying to access a shared folder in a workgroup.

I have a small home workgroup network and have one or more shared folders on each system. For some reason I can not access the shared folders on one system (system A). I get a the following message:
 
\\computername\sharename is not accessible you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Not enough server storage is available to process this command


I have no problem printing to the shared printer attached to system A, or accessing the shared folders on Systems B or C from System A.  I simply can not access the shared folders on System A from any other system on the network.

I am running Windows XP Pro across all systems in the network and have them similarly configured. I am Running Zone Alarm Security Suite but have tried shutting that down to no avail. I have a Pentium 4 2.0 ghz with 768mb of memory.

I've pulled my hair out on this one and welcome your sage advice and words of wisdom.

Thanks,

Is the windows firewall active. Zone Alarm has an build in firewall too, it should be disabled to test this.

Best way to find an answer (other than EE) is to just throw the question at google, refraze it as many ways as you can...
