Assuming you setup the 'workgroup' properly, you must decide which folders you will share.
Do not share a whole drive (the root), only folders. Go to Windows Explorer and right click on the desired folder, select the Sharing option and fill in the shared resourse name and the privileges on the folder. I forget the 2 password options but the default is the right one.
You're mostly there by the sounds of it.
