do you have file and print sharing enabled on the XP box..?

create a folder (on the XP box) and enable "simple file sharing".. then try it..

Well, it is configured, 'cause I can see some of the shared folders, but I can't see them all..., that's the problem

Of the ones I see?, yes, I can..., but there are others that I don't even see listed as shared, even though they are...

sounds like a permissions problem on the XP box.. since you can see
"some of the shares" and the contents..
