I havent any boxes to check but this works for me...

Create a text (.txt) file with the following command

net share "YourSharedDrivesName"="netwok path of the drive you want to share(Ie: c:/documents and settings/the file you want share or just "d:/" if you want share your entire "D" drive)"

Then save it has a (.bat) and put it in your startup folder (start/all programs/startup)

its will automatically share your drive after you login to windows...not perfect..but still
