You don't want to use the Guest account anyway. The Guest account is a
special system account, not one meant for when you are feeling hospitable.
It is disabled by default in Windows XP, Vista, Linux, Unix, and OS X for a
"The Guest account is intended for users who require temporary access to the
system. However, if this account is enabled, a security risk may exist
because an unauthorized user could gain anonymous access to the system
through this account." http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...chNet.10).aspx
So if you enabled Guest, disable it now and create a Standard/Limited
(Vista, XP Pro/XP Home) for your visitors. Call the new user account
something like "Visitor".
