    Default Can't access files over network/password

    I am currently using a live cd version of openSUSE 11.0, and while I can browse the shared folders on my home network, it ask me for a login and password, which to my knowledge do not even exist.

    This is my first venture into linux, and I kind of need to be able to access my files on the other computer.

    Other computer is WinXP home if that helps.

    Every windows XP user has a username and password... there is no logging
    in otherwise. XP is often setup to login without these credentials but
    the username and password are still there. The password may be blank
    but the username is either Administrator or something else you setup
    when installing the machine. Right-click on My Computer: Manager: Users
    and Groups, and see what you have in there that looks like a normal name
    for a user besides 'Guest' and 'Administrator'.

    Good luck.
