I think that the problem with the public folders not showing up may be that the default settings in Win7 for sharing these are set to use the simple sharing which I know XP sometimes has issues with - you could try manually sharing the public folders using the advanced sharing option.

As for the need for password, that would suggest to me that the user name you are using in XP is different to the one on Win7 you have to have identical user names with passwords set (passwords can be different) to allow seamless sharing

Good to see you're progressing though
