Have you explicitly shared the C:\ directory? Or are you trying to connect
to the hidden administrative share, C$?
In Vista, the administrative shares such as C$ have indeed been removed, as
a safety precaution.
I believe you should be able to share the root direcory manually (I can, on
my machine). But sharing C:\ probably isn't a great practice, from the
security perspective. Use C:\Users\Public\Documents as the common shared
directory on all machines.
