have you done this:
Add a User account on the XP computer with the same identical username and password as the 2000 computer uses to logon to the workgroup.
you could also use the Network Wizard in XP to help.

I agree with Sgt Shultz, your best bet is to have a user account on both machines that are identical, however keep in mind that you don't have to be logged onto the XP machine with that account, it just needs to exist with the same password. Make sure you know the restrictions if you set the user on XP to be 'Limited'. Admin User would be best if you do not need the restrictions.
