    Unhappy Drive sharing on a network

    I have a new Windows 7 computer networked with a laptop running XP Pro SP3. On the 7 machine is drive D: containing two folders, each with multiple sub-folders and files. I have tried to share the drive with no success. I have drilled down through all of the permission layers and everything is identical between the drive permissions and the folder permissions, with one exception: on the Drive Properties page the Share button is grayed out, while on the Folder Properties page, it is not. I can open the folder on Drive D: just fine, but when I try to open the drive itself, I am told I don't have permission.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
