Windows 7: Shared drives issues

Shared drives issues

I have two 7 Ultimate computers, the main one is x64 and the other one is x86. I want to share all my drives on the x64 with the x86 machine. I have Homegroup turned off because I cannot figure out the IPv6 thing, and do not have the technical know-how to enable it. So I'm just sharing the old fashioned way. Which is better, I think, because eventually I plan on connecting my Ubuntu machine in there somewhere. But I'm off the topic now. The problem I'm having is that when I open Explorer and browse the x64 computer, I see all the shared drive letters. When I click on any of them, it tells me they are not shared, and to contact my sys admin for access. Well, I *AM* the sys admin, and I have no idea how to fix this. I have password protected sharing turned off, and on each of the shared drives, I've set access for "Everyone" to Full. I don't know what else to do! I thank you all in advance for your help, and please keep in mind, I'm not a whiz at computer work...I just kind of piece things together and stumble across most of my answers.

Why is nobody responding to me? Is this not a legitimate request? This is exactly why I like my Linux machine better. You have a question, and people answer right away, not ignore you. Someone please help me! I have no idea how to fix this!
