Guest account on XP home cannot access any network shares

I have an xp home computer and when signed in under guest, I can't pull up anything off the network. Is this fixable? I've never really bothered with guest accounts in the past but in this case it's the most convienent solution. If it could access network shares, it'd be perfect.
Thanks!

The guest user is usually locked out of a lot of things including logging on to another system.
