user profile can't log on

I have recently set up a couple of home machines to share an internet
connection. The host machine is a Win2000 and the client machine is running
ME.

Everything is working well in the ICS department, however, since I have
enabled multiple user profiles on the ME machine, my wife can no longer
access the 2000 machine network resources using her own profile. She simply
gets a message that says '\\dir\file is not accessible. Access is denied' .
I have no problem accessing the 2000 machine from the ME machine using my
profile, but then I am also administrator on the 2000 machine - she is a
restricted user. I'm guessing it might be a permissions problem.

Where do I start?

On the Windows 2000 machine create a user account with an identical
username and password as the one your wife is using on Windows Me.

Actually, I had already done that... But I did manage to fix the problem. As
I suspected it was a permissions problem.
Solution: R-clik on folder, select security, add user and then set
permissions. Done.

Thanks for the help. I'm still not sure what caused it though. Seems to me
when you set a folder to share it should pass on properties by default. Oh
well...
