Accessing XP from 2000

I have a network of 2 2Kpro and 1 XP pro computer. They were on a 2K domain
but are no longer connected to it. All the computers were sharing files etc.
when connected to the domain.
I set them up to day with static IPs and changed them to workgroup
computers.
Right-click My computer
select properties
network/computer name tab
properties button

The 2k computers can share files between themselves. The XP can access the
2k machines just fine. The 2k machines can "see" the xp in their workgroup
but can't login to it.

typing \\server1 into the address bar brings up a login box but when you
type in any account and its password it says that it is an invalid password
or unrecognized account.

I turned on logging for logon failures and get
event id: 525
logon type: 3
process:NtLmSsp

I tried enabling the guest account but that was not successful.

The usernames and passwords are the same.

On the WinXP PC Click "My Computer" / Tools /
Folder Options / View / Use simple file sharing.
