network printing

I am sharing a printer on a Windows 2000 machine. I am sharing it with
Windows XP Pro and Home PCs. I have set up 'Users' in the Win2k PC that
reflect the users on the XP machines. In another network I have it set up
similarly so that when a user logs onto their computer they have access to
the files on the Win2k machine, without having to 'sign in' when trying to
access the win2k PC. This is how I want it to work, but in the network in
question I am prompted to enter a username and password when I try to open a
shared folder on the Win2k PC. I use the same username and password I use to
sign onto the XP machine.
Why I am I still being prompted?

They are all on the same workgroup. It is wierd, on Thursday it wasn't
working, then Friday it was working, then today it isn't working again. The
only change is that the user shuts the PC down at night. Today the user was
able to see the network printer and print a test page, then a few minutes
later he seemed to have lost access.

If you are shutting down the 2000 PC, I imagine that you would have
problems printing to it. Also there is the issue of limited connections
to a workstation.
