Smb.conf trouble

I have a Windows computer with only XP installed and one that's dual booted with Windows and Mandriva. I want to share my Linux space to the 100% Windows computer. Here's what I've done:


- set the security level to share (don't worry, I'm just sharing my files with a trusted person)

- named my shares

- set my shares to be browseable, read only, and public

- commented


I've read the recommended http://wiki.mandrivausers.org/index.php/Samba_configuration, but I don't know what kinds of logins I have to provide. Is it Administrator or is it the User Accounts that you make after installing Windows XP? I am confused because the profile Suk Wah Ling (the only profile) has no password. So what I do?
