I can get my XBOX to see my computer on the network but I just get access denied. Do I have to have XP?

hmmm...

HATRICK98:
w2k and XP have about the same structure so its not really
anything special.

LOOK IN THE PINNED TOPICS !
There are more than many good guides and helpfull hints there !

Good Luck !

From what I remember Win2k is more fussy about who it'll allow to connect to it's network shares, as it is more security concious than xp's "simple file sharing". I would guess that you need to edit your XboxMediaCenter.xml and in within the samba element edit the defaultUserId and default password to match an account on your windows box that has access to the shares. Alternatively enabling the guest account on your windows box might work, but posses a security risk.
